"Organized by a group of men in 1901, the Ogden Packing Company expanded consistently until it encompassed 6 acres for its main facility. It became the largest meat packing plant west of the Missouri River and had a daily capacity of over 3,000 animals. Their slogan in Utah was ""Raise a Pig"" so that local farmers and their sons would help in the business. After World War I most plants were forced to cut back on production because demand was dropping. It did bounce back and is still an important component in Utah's economy."

Name Meaning

English and Irish: from the Old Norse personal name þorkell, a contracted form of a name composed of the elements þórr, name of the Scandinavian god of thunder ( see Thor ) + ketill ‘cauldron’. The personal name Thurkill or Thirkill was in use throughout England in the Middle Ages; in northern England it had been introduced directly by Scandinavian settlers, whereas in the South it was the result of Norman influence. This surname and its variants are especially common in East Anglia. In Ireland the Old Norse name was adopted as a Gaelic personal name (Thorcall), which generated the surnames McCorkle and Corkill .
