We already use pigs for valve transplantation and in the previous generations, for producing insulin and heparin.
Using the latest techniques of genetic engineering made possible by the revolutionary technique of Crisp-cas-9, we are on the brink of commonplace organ transplantation from pigs. It is a real possibility.
