Bad news for the Chinese, good news for our pork producers.

It is an ebola style hemorrhagic fever. It hasn't crossed over yet, but if it did that would be a problem. Pigs and humans are pretty close, genetically speaking. Much closer than we are to birds.

The Chinese have had a Problem raising their pigs for years. This is nothing new...



Sept. 24, 2013, 11:48 AM ‎EDT
By Michael Felberbaum
China is bringing home some serious American bacon.
Shareholders of Smithfield Foods approved a plan to sell the world's largest pork producer and processor to a Chinese company.

The Smithfield, Va.-based company said more than 96 percent of the votes cast during a special meeting in Richmond on Tuesday were in favor of Shuanghui International Holdings Ltd.'s $34 per-share offer, or $4.72 billion in cash.
The deal, which is expected to close on Thursday, will be the largest takeover of a U.S. company by a Chinese firm, valued at about $7.1 billion including debt. Its sale to Hong Kong-based Shuanghui comes at a time of serious food safety problems in China, some of which have involved Shuanghui, which owns food and logistics enterprises and is the largest shareholder of China's biggest meat processor.

The only thing slightly new, is we don't have a President who is owned by
the Chinese. President Trump will exploit their weakness, unless the
Democrat slaves of the Chinese exploit ours.

Stop fooling yourself. He will not take advantage of this crisis as many other US commodity exports could be affected such as Soybeans as ASF will probably cause soymeal demand to drop 12% this year in China.
Argentina has inked a sweet deal to export pork to China and a few other producing countries are keen to make up the shortfall.

Trumps prevarication on China has resulted in the loss of many levers he had at the beginning.

We sell China Rice for the first time, we sell them Chicken, Trump got them to let in our Beef, and we have been selling them Pork for years.


You just don't get it do you? Even if Argentina sells China all its Pork ( which won't happen) the world wide price will increase.

But of course, you think Trump should have never been tough on China.
He should have had an apology tour, and took campaign donations like
the Democrats took.

I get the forthcoming price increases and impact on the US consumer I just donít get your enduring faith in Trumpís geopolitical skills.

I wonder if the culled pigs are making it to market anyway.

A country that would grind up plastic and add it to milk would do about anything.

It has something to do with the lowest unemployment in several decades.
Matter of fact, last time it was this low, we still had the draft.

I wasn't a Trump fan during the Primaries. I didn't and still don't like his mouth. I even got an infraction for explaining why some of what he promised would never happen, on a Pro Trump Thread.

But we have the Best economy of any major country in the World now.
Under Trump's watch, we killed Russian Troops in Syria.
Trump is trying to fix problems that the last several Presidents did not attempt to fix. So the Democrat's lies about him don't hold water.

What I don't understand is: Why can't people like you ignore the bile that
comes from his mouth and focus on what he is accomplishing?

Sure, the Tariffs can be painful. I work for a family that grows over a thousand acres of Soybeans. I get it.

But in my opinion, if Trump didn't do this type of thing, and still decreased
regulations, enforced the Border, and cut Taxes, the Stock Market would be so high it would be in danger of a major crash.

Trump is busy doing so many things. He goes to Europe and tries to get those freeloaders to put more money into their own defense and its starting
to work for example.

I don't care who he ****es off, I was tired of President Barry going around the world kissing butt with nothing to show for it.

How long can you safely freeze bacon is the question.

1-2 years in a residential freezer, then you can pressure can it and get another couple years.


I've done it.

Week before this broke I put another 22lbs of bacon in the freezer.
$1.50/lb

I purchased some to see how bad they were.
