Abstract:
The emerging national controversy over the socio-economic and environmental impacts of corporate pork production on rural communities raises claims environmental injustice. The US swine industry has undergone a dramatic restructuring, expansion, and vertical integration of its pork production systems, locating in peripheral, rural locations like North Carolina.
