Posted on 12/27/2011 2:25:52 PM PST by Olog-hai
A court in the northern German town of Osnabrück has ruled that a farmer is allowed to feed his pigs vast quantities of raw onions, despite complaints from neighbors about their eye-watering gaseous emissions.
The farmer has been feeding his 1,500 pigs several cubic meters of onions every week for the past 14 years, but city authorities ordered him to stop, and threatened to fine him 2,500 (US$3,267), after locals complained of the resulting pungent porcine farts.
The council justified its decision on the grounds that planning permission for the pigsty forbade strong-smelling foods, e.g. kitchen waste.
But the court overturned the decision, saying that the city council had imposed the penalty on the assumption that the onions were to blame for the stink without providing sufficient evidence.

Way back in the pioneer/homesteading days, pigs would sometimes be pastured with cattle and horses and gladly ate whatever the livestock dropped along with their constant rooting for anything edible. Maybe a month before fall butchering they were given corn to flush things out, so to speak. A fart scented with onions doesn’t sound so bad.
My thought, exactly! A shoulder roast that needs no savories? Excellent!
Oder in the court! Oder in the court!
Good thing I checked your TO line else I was sending it to Chaz.

That is probably why he is feeding them onions.The meat will pick up the taste of the diet.
He better feed them with corn for about 90 days before slaughter to get the onion taste out of the meat! As is, the meat will be unedible.
He will probably have healthier pigs. Onions are from the same family as garlic and have great antibiotic and antimicrobial properties.
I heard there’s a new “The View” segment specially created for Whoopi called “Guess What I Ate for Lunch?”
