"Researchers at the University of Minnesota are trying to unravel a mystery that's plaguing hog farms.

Over the last few years foam on manure pits has caused barns to explode, killing thousands of hogs, and causing millions of dollars in damage. The foam traps gases like methane and when a spark ignites, it can create an explosion

Researchers at the U are trying to determine how bacteria develops in a manure pit and find a fix for the foam. Pork production is a billion dollar industry in Minnesota."
