Photo of the day: The reason

Why do pig farmers like Alyce Nieland do what they do?

The answer: their kids.

Neiland shared an endearing #RealPigFarming snapshot of her husband and kids as they walked around their family farm.

"This picture makes my heart smile. Those two little ones are the reason we do what we do. If they want it, they can be the 5th generation on this farm," she said.

#RealPigFarming is a social media campaign sponsored by the National Pork Board. It encourages the nation's pork producers to share photos and experiences online using the hashtag, #RealPigFarming.
