      Poop Cycle & Everything But the Oink

    This handy 1-page full colour chart shows the 4-stage cycle of what happens with pig poop, or manure, from storage to farmers' fields to fertilizing crops like corn, which is then used to feed pigs before the entire process repeats. It also highlights some facts about just how much "pig poop" is created and used at the various steps along the way.




    On the back, "Everything But The Oink" shows all the other bi-products that come from pigs. Nothing is wasted.
