A North Las Vegas pig farm famous for recycling leftover casino buffet food is soon going up for auction.

City officials scheduled a news conference Monday to announce the development, which is expected to boost property values in the surrounding residential neighborhoods. The farm predates many of the homes nearby but spurs frequent complaints for its foul odors.

The development comes as the city builds a bridge and expands roads in the area of the farm. Its owner plans to move the operation to a quieter area north of the current location and closer to a landfill.

City officials say the starting bid for the 153-acre farm will be about $31 million. The auction is set for June, although the move and site cleanup are expected to take three years.
