Lean hogs/pigs have a few exceptional qualities as an item to be exchanged. Most importantly is the way that the lean hoard can be made into an immense scope of various items, from foodstuffs to medicinal supplies. Likewise, late mechanical and farming advances have permitted the lean hoard to be created everywhere throughout the world, and this is reflected by the way that more than 60% of all meat that is devoured universally is pork based.
