Halacha - Means of Employment
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Answer: The Shulchan Aruch YD 117 says that one may not engage in commerce regularly with items that are forbidden MiDeoraisa, according to torah law. Since this would certainly apply to pigs, it would seem to be forbidden. However, if one owned a cow farm and a specific animal happened to become treif we may sell it to a non-Jew since it is not the focus of his business. This would be similar to a trapper who happened to catch a non-kosher animal and may sell it to a non-Jew, as mentioned in the Shulchan Aruch there.
