    Whilst I can personally understand the villagers discomfort that is no reason to deliberately destroy the water supply to the pigs and put them in distress.

    It also seems that the Agrosuper outfit were a bunch of incompetents from the very beginning.

    Symbiotic systems like the one here need very careful planning and practical trials before setting the relationship in stone. Agrosuper clearly failed at this stage.
