In our strange news of the day, it has been reported that a pig farm located in North Las Vegas is for sale, which would not normally be news, but given the farm's strange ties to the gaming industry we thought it'd be interesting to report.
R.C. Farms out of North Las Vegas is known for its recycling of the vast amounts of buffet food that the city's various casinos don't go through. The farm at one point had more than 7,000 pigs, but has recently hovered around only 3,500 swine as the owner Robert Combs has opted to retire and the multiple complaints about the farm's odor.
Interested parties can bid on the property beginning in June, and the floor for the property is $31 million. The winner of the property will have to move the site, which will give the current site the chance to be transformed into a new up and coming property.
The owner of the pig farm is widely considered by town officials to be a pioneer and a staple in the community. The town's mayor John Lee commented on Combs, saying "Today begins the next chapter for his farm and our turnaround town which is experiencing an exciting transformation."
