Association says worldwide bacon shortage inevitable
Enjoy all the bacon you can now because you may have to pay more for it next year.
Britain’s National Pig Association says a worldwide bacon shortage is “unavoidable.”
The summer’s drought left farmers with less corn and soybean feed to give their herds.
The number of slaughtered pigs could drop by ten-percent, doubling the price of pork next year.
Bacon lovers in the United States don’t have to panic just yet. America’s pork supply actually reached a record last month.
Although, U.S. hog farmers have been reducing their herds due to high feed costs, but the situation isn’t as bad as it is in the United Kingdom.
