I wonder if the training is for the benefit of the swine or for the neighbors. I've been downwind from some of these swine farms while living in Michigan and they have an "aroma" all their own. Interesting truck and photo.
Doubt this benefits the neighbors. Believe it benefits the hog owners for increased profits and the hogs themselves who can avoid being poisoned by too much methane.
I just wanted to ask if it's me, the non-native speaker, who thinks: Ah, they train swine to ventilate!:-)
Many native speakers have asked that same question. No, they train the swine raisers how and when to ventilate hog confinement units. I had to ask the fellow who drives the truck.
We know so little! I wonder if there have been any fatalities (or explosions) due to non ventilated swine!
Don't know about explosions, but proper ventilation is mostly about keeping swine healthy and heating costs in check. Thanks for your question.
