Bacon Shortage Rumor Hogwash Says Farm Bureau Federation

It’s been a hot topic on Facebook and Twitter recently, but Midwestern agriculture experts say the idea of a supposed bacon shortage is hogwash.


The American Farm Bureau Federation and pork producers say the overall supply of pork will be down only slightly, if at all.


But even though you’ll be able to find bacon, you may be paying more for it.


They warn that the effects of the drought will drive up prices for livestock feed, and that, in turn, could raise the price of bacon by 10-percent or more.
