Illinois hog inventory has gone up 2 percent since this time last year, adding thousands of jobs to Illinois’ economy. Jennifer Tirey, executive director of the Illinois Pork Producers Association, said the growth is due to new processing plants in surrounding states. “In 2016, we had 2.4 million roughly for capacity,” Tirey said. “Now, our capacity in 2017 is up to almost 2.6 million.” (Illinois News Network)
