The Minnesota agricultural commissioner said 10,000 hogs a day are being euthanized in Minnesota.

With COVID-19 battering food supply chains, 10,000 hogs are being euthanized daily in Minnesota. Millions of healthy chickens also have been killed, and thousands of turkeys are likely to be next, the state's top agriculture official said Tuesday.

"It's about as big as an [agricultural] emergency as you can have, and on many fronts," said Thom Petersen, commissioner of the Minnesota Department of Agriculture.
