Okay, I have to admit that I laughed at a couple of these. Iowa has the most organic hogs and the most hog waste? Go figure. Nevada has the lowest rainfall? It’s a desert, what did you expect? Indiana is the burial place of Johnny Appleseed? How is that something that they excel at?

At any rate, it’s an interesting infographic and I learned a few new things.
