NCPC: Hog Farms Weather Dorian Without Incident

North Carolina’s pork industry came through Hurricane Dorian without any major problems, according to a release from the North Carolina Pork Council.

Hurricane Dorian, which made landfall on the Outer Banks on Friday, caused scattered farm-level power outages, but on-farm generators operated with ample fuel supplies. Wind damage was minimal and livestock and feed movements were occurring on Friday.

Rainfall amounts from the hurricane have not negatively impacted treatment lagoons, the Council stated, noting that more than 300 lagoons have been removed from flood-prone areas in the past two decades.
