Wisconsin Celebrates National Bacon Day

MADISON, WI (Ben Caxton) — Monday was National Bacon Day – and Wisconsin plays a role in providing the 1.1 billion servings of bacon consumed in the U.S. this year. `Wisconsin ranks number 9 among pork-producing state, with neighboring Iowa, Illinois and Minnesota at one, two and three. Wisconsin had around 325,000 hogs as of December 2018, according to national agriculture statistics. The industry is not without controversy – plans by an Iowa producer to build a 26-thousand hog operation in Burnett County led the county board to pass a one-year moratorium on large scale farms in August.`
