No. I never look at the price of food. I just pick up and pay for what I want to eat.

The thing at Blackstone is there's only a couple guys buying. One of them gets a phone call or needs the restroom and the market tanks.

Mexico and China Tariffs should help hog prices. According to the USDA, we have the lowest quantity of pork in storage now than at any point in the last 60 years. Look for prices to go up in stores and no doubt will never go down, but good prices will be short lived for hog farmers.

Cheap hogs here have filled all of the locker bookings. If you home kill you are OK, but you will have a very hard time getting a custom kill. Deer season opens soon and that will make things even more hectic.

I wonder if the NC floods have anything to do with the market change?

If hog producers make a few nickels, this is a good thing.
