Interesting news blip. This is the second company in Vermont doing "Organic GMO's" with the other one up in Hardwick doing maple trees:
A small Vermont company has mad major advancements this year in the burgeoning field of Organic GMOs which play to the all natural food markets. The claim that crossing pigs and spiders they have been able to produce the worlds first eight foot hogs that offer longer loins and more hams and shoulder pier pig. (photo).
Perhaps more importantly is that the longer body length of the engineered swine have resulted in a more efficient grazer that does not require the high grain feed inputs normally associated with pork production. Pasturing in turn means true green eggs and ham.
Note that this is the same company that several years ago released the egg laying pigs although production levels were never found to be economical.
