Interview with Bobby Lane (2009)
The Swine Rearing Laboratory was one of the buildings located at the Agriculture Center along northbound Interstate 45.

The eastern end of the 2,979 square-foot building was used as a feeding area for the center's porcine livestock.

The building, not in use since the mid-1990s, was demolished in late 2010. An underground waste collection tank was also removed during this time.
