The Great Bacon Shortage

F*cking scam. The 1%ers are at it again. There will be a bacon shortage next year. Now its only fair that the pig farmers and wall street are going to have to start price gouging this year to make up for their losses that may or may not happen next year. On one hand, I love bacon. On the other hand, I hate greedy bastards. Who will win this battle: principals or stomach. I will compromise. Beef bacon. If you haven't tried it yet, you need to.

I'm so glad we're co-oping a pig and a half at a friend's place! Seriously, it is real. Feed went up 15-20% this year, and that is before all the feed crop failures. Mn had good corn, fortunately that is mostly feed corn but the price is going to rise soon, likely before apring.

I already sell my neighborhood grown, home smoked bacon by the ounce !

Well not really, but i dis give some away as xmas gifts. However it was just local hog, not our precious neighborhood stuff. Took a bunch down the grand in march also. Nothing beats real smoke and it is really easy with a decent smoker.

price bump doesnt equate to a shortage. but if you say their is a shortage then you can make the price bump excessive or unnoticed. no shortage.

If you read the industry news, it's not just price of feed and pork but reduction in sow herds. Fewer mama, fewer piglets and hogs. The increase in price will mitigate the shortage by reducing demand.

I thought that article sid we wouldn't be affected til next year. Here in Oregon, the local news channels are acting as if there will be no bacon next year. They're causing unnecessary pork panik.
