Age 1

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 Scottish: habitational name from any of various places called Orton. All those in England share a second element from Old English tūn ‘enclosure’, ‘settlement’, but the first element in each case is more difficult to determine. Examples in Cambridgeshire and Warwickshire are on the banks of rivers, so that there it is probably Old English ōfer ‘riverbank’; in other cases it is impossible to decide between ofer ‘ridge’ and ufera ‘upper’. Orton in Cumbria is probably formed with the Old Norse byname Orri ‘black-cock’ (the male black grouse). Orton near Fochabers, Scotland, is of uncertain etymology.
