Alot of pig farmers do that. It makes the hog taste like crap though. If you are sending them to market who cares, but I eat the hogs I feed. I prefer them to be corn feed just like my cattle. If you feed something garbage it tastes like garbage.
When I worked at the grocery store it was a blast throwing out old yogurt and salads. Boy we would make a mess of the dumpster chucking it against the side.
