Doesn't the DNR realize that all feral pigs came from domesticated pigs at one time? And feral means not contained or domesticaed. So if the pigs are being raised on a farm - they're domesticated. I would guess that these farmers are raising their pigs in "humane" or "organic" situations. Not raising them in huge buildings where they never get to run and roam a field or take a mud bath in a shallow pond. They probably have their teeth nipped (cut off so they can't grow tusks). No cutting off of the tail. (in large pig farms they cut off the tail because in close confines, little piglets think a tail it a toy and play with it and bite it. Cuts down on infection and such so they just go ahead and cut it off.) If these farmers can make a living raising heritage breeds in a heritage way, leave them alone. They take better care of their animals than the large corporate pig farms. My two cents worth.
