Was happy to attend the open house for Bradshaw's new Pig Barn yesterday. Another huge benefit to our local economy! Economic Impact of Bradshaw’s New 5,000 Head Pig Barn • Annual Corn consumption approximately 90,000 bushels valued at $315,000 • Annual Soybean consumption approximately 20,000 bushels valued at $180,000 • All feed will be delivered from Western Illinois Feed in Pleasant Hill supporting local jobs and local farmers. • The new hog farm will produce more than 700,000 pork chops and 10 million slices of bacon per year. • Manure from the hog farm will fertilize nearby corn and soybean fields in an environmentally sound and sustainable manner. • The new farm will also add to the local tax base and contribute taxes to the county and local roads, school district and other local taxing districts. • The farm construction and operation creates economic development for local businesses including: o Longhorn Cattle & Swine Confinement o Pike County Lumber o Pike County Concrete o PikeCo Power o Thorn Creek Insurance o Prairieland FS o B-K Electric o Pike Pigs o Western Illinois Feed
