Apart from it's delicious meat products it's surprising just how many other industries use porcine by-products. Watched QI the other night and was amazed at just how many areas of manufacturing are reliant on porcine products.

Examples include inkjet paper, fabric softener and toothpaste.
Don't recall ever seeing any of these as being halal.

Pigs are just like cattle, every last bit is put to use. Ears, hooves, trachea, bully sticks(penis),lung, tendons, hide, etc... and that is just some of the body parts used as dog treats. Better than wasting it.

Please say the butt hole is used as a dog treat rather than a McD's burger

"Apart from hunting truffles, pigs are the only farmyard animal that is useful when it is dead, because they do not provide things like eggs or milk."

You hunt truffles with pigs, WHEN they are dead?
