Rep. Jones Tours Pig Farm


McLean County Farm Bureau Adopted Legislator Rep. Thaddeus Jones (D-Calumet City), left, got a ‘hands-on’ tour of Pat Bane’s pig farm.

A tour of Bane Family Pork Farm offered a look at modern pig farming for McLean County Farm Bureau’s adopted legislator, Rep. Thaddeus Jones (D-Calumet City).

The visit offered the chance for Rep. Jones to see animal care in action and take a look inside the barns at a farrow (birth) to wean hog farm. For more on Bane Family Pork Farm, click here.

The Adopt-A-Legislator Program® through Illinois Farm Bureau pairs state lawmakers from the Chicago area with downstate County Farm Bureaus. The goal is to build long term relationships and cultivate mutual understanding of urban and rural issues.

Rep. Jones represents the 29th District on the south side of Chicago.
