Legislators Visit Borgic Farms

First-hand view of how pigs are raised

Phil Borgic opened up his farm once again for a tour group.  The group consisted of four members of the Illinois House of Representatives and local media.  Representative Sara Wojcicki-Jimenez, Representative Tim Butler, Representative Avery Bourne, Representative Steve Andersson, Senator Andy Manar, who sits on the Ag Committee and Senate Ag Committee Chairman Bill Cunningham, learned a great deal about the pork industry from Phil and his employees. Rep. Andersson started the Bacon Caucus last year and we’re glad he’s interested in learning more about our industry.
