The Arkansas Farm Bureau arranged an outing for media to the farm today. The Arkansas Times wasn’t provided a notice. We got a belated invite not long before the event was to begin. Some hogs are reportedly already on the property, but nowhere near the 6,500 eventually planned to supply agri giant Cargill.
