White Co. could get hog farm soon

WHITE CO., IL (WFIE) - A commercial hog farm could be coming to White County, Illinois.

Maschhoff Corporation is hoping to build the hog farm in Burnt Prairie.

At this point, company reps say they're only in the planning stages. They will submit an application to the state Department of Agriculture, soon.

After that, the White County Board plans to host a public hearing where neighbors can ask questions and share concerns. A date has not been set.
