Ever heard the expression "When pigs fly"? Well, they are now, according to a farmer in China.

He says he's discovered a technique to make your bacon taste better: exercise. He gets his pigs to dive into a pond and swim.

Chinese news agency CCTV reports the farmer says he starts training the pigs this special skill when they are one month old.

The farmer says he makes the pigs dive at least three times a day from this nearly 10-foot-high platform into a pond. But he says some have dived up to 30 times a day.

The farmer says all that exercise makes the pigs leaner...and that makes them taste better. He says it also makes them worth more.

In fact, the farmer says he can sell the leaner pigs for nearly three times more than ordinary pigs.
