But before you embark on your journey to the riches, think about this:

Pigs get fat, hogs get slaughtered

It pays to be greedy, but not too greedy or else you'll get in trouble. If you get too greedy like a hog, you can end up loosing it all.

For example, when my business partner and I started Crazy Egg we could have sold it for around 6 million to one of the top internet companies. We were a bit greedy at the time and wanted no less than 10 million dollars.

At this time the company had been around for a year and it wasn't even bring in $20,000 a month. On top of that we were losing money because our costs were higher than our revenue.

We should have been grateful that someone wanted to give us that kind of money, and accepted the offer. If you analyze the numbers, we weren't even worth 6 million. If we took the 6 million at the time, we would have been happy pigs, but instead both my business partner and I wanted to be hogs.

Now that 6 million dollar blunder wasn't even the worst mistake I made, but we won't get into that right now. So in hopes that you won't make mistakes revolved around greed, here are some things you should know if you plan on owning a business:

How do range hogs differ from hogs that are raised as livestock today?

Today, hogs are raised in various ways. There are actually what people would call "range hogs" or "free range pigs" being raised today. The pigs live outdoors in a pasture. These hogs have an area or areas where they can take shelter, get water and be fed grains. The pigs may roam in and out of this area at will. There are also, hogs being raised in confinement. These pigs do not roam. Generally, they each have individual space where they eat, drink and sleep. It helps the pig reproduce more efficiently. The offspring is more likely to survive to maturity. Hog production, ultimately for pork consumers, has undergone many changes. When hogs were raised by Pioneers, they were often wanderers and foraged for themselves. This meant that the hog was lean or fat depending upon what they found to eat and in what quantity. Some hogs were kept in pens and fed grain and "slops". These were generally large and rounded by the time they were slaughtered. Now, hogs are raised to be lean. Their bodies are longer and not as wide when viewed from the rear. They are fed grain and no slops.

Why are meaty hogs in demand for breeding programs?

Pigs originally had a relatively high percentage of fat to lean because lard was valuable for cooking. With the advent of vegetable based substitutes and the current phobia against animal fat, the demand for lard has dropped. Consumers are much more interested in lean meat products of all kinds which means that pigs are being bred for lean meat and low fat content (back fat etc. since hogs tend to build fat on the outside of their muscle as opposed to interior marbling of the meat). Hogs grow rapidly and have better yield rates than cattle or sheep which means that a leaner hog produces more meat for its size (70%) than does a cow or lamb.
