Recently, Suining County in Jiangsu Province launched a green pig-breeding project – building villas for pigs, more than 600 luxury pig house stand in poplar woods, each one costs 8000 yuan. The county’s Agricultural Commission director said the pigs will have a cheerful mood in good environment, the meat will be better.
In the interview, Chen Yiqing, the owner of the pig villas said, the idea of building pig villas came from virtual farm game of stealing crops from neighbors: “At first we spent over 8000 Yuan to build a pig house, many villagers did not understand it and wondered why spent so much money to build a pig house.What they do know is that the room is equipped with fermentation bed, constant temperature and humidity system and other modern equipments, although the first investment is a large amount, but the effect is very good, Inside the pig house is warm in winter and cool in summer, it is good to the pig’s growth.”said Chen Yiqing.
“What these pigs live is not an ordinary life, they not only live in a ‘luxury’ house but are very happy. At 8:00 every morning these pigs go out for a walk and around the 4:00 or 5:00 in the afternoon they will return to their ‘home’. ” said Chen Yiqing, who gave much attention and thought to keep good pigs, he specially install WatchDog inside the “villa” and around the woods to take remote control.
Well, I guess “Pig Villas” is just another face-saving project for those officials, the expensive pigsty is just an official performance model, behind the rhetoric that “good mood produces good meat ” is a springboard to a a higher position.
