The company owns more than 51 percent of its farms and hopes to sell directly to researchers and health care companies, which now typically buy from third parties. Stanton said the U.S. market for pork byproducts used for medical, pet food and nonfood purposes stands at more than $100 billion, and that excludes any potential market for animal-to-human transplants, known as xenotransplants.

Hog hearts Pigs have long been a tantalizing source of transplants because their organs are so similar to humans. A hog heart at the time of slaughter, for example, is about the size of an adult human heart. Other organs from pigs being researched for transplantation into humans include kidney, liver and lungs. Prior efforts at pig-to-human transplants have failed because of genetic differences that caused organ rejection or viruses that posed an infection risk.
