(SOUNDBITE OF ARCHIVED RECORDING)

UNIDENTIFIED CROWD: Ooo - Pig - Sooie - Razorbacks.

MONTAGNE: Ooo - Pig - Sooie - Razorbacks.

MONTAGNE: It's the famous hog call, chanted by fans of sports teams of the University of Arkansas' Razorbacks.

INSKEEP: And will farmers owe a royalty if they call their pigs?

MONTAGNE: For now, though, that's the Business News on MORNING EDITION.

From NPR News, I'm Renee Montagne, trademarked.
