Indiana Pork Producers and a Hancock County family farm took their Statehouse testimony to a hog barn this week. The group is worried lawmakers will put more regulations on animal agriculture.

The legislature is studying large animal farms this summer – barns that hold hundreds to thousands of animals. The larger ones are known as CAFOS.

Hill Farms is slightly smaller. Heather Hill says regulations have become stricter over the decades.

U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos will visit schools across Indiana Friday as the last stop on a six-state back-to-school tour.

DeVos is highlighting schools that she says are offering innovative and groundbreaking curriculum and teaching methods.
