SCIENCE has taken a look at the pigpen and devised a revolutionary new system to raise young swine. Developed by Nutrena Mills, Inc., Minneapolis, Minn., the Pigloo is a prefab wooden structure designed to increase the low-cost production of hogs by protecting them from disease. It is said to cut breeding costs over 50 per cent.

    They need to add little ramps to assist the piglets in strapping on their prosthetic legs…

    I doubt that anyone got the exact same feedburner ad as me, but it an aerial-view image of suited men standing around a display of faucets and other fixtures, with a very similar physical look to the first image of the piglets. Beats me what the ad was for. A funny juxtaposition, nevertheless.
