The Indiana State Fair's "Year of Pigs" will begin on Friday, drawing its theme from a state pork industry
that's the fifth largest in the nation.

The industry group Indiana Pork Farmers says the state is home to 3,000 pork producers who raise 8 million pigs and feed
25 million people annually. The industry employs 15,000 people.

Each year, the Indiana State Fair selects an agricultural product to showcase. Recent fairs have featured corn and tomatoes.
