It’s good to hear some positive news for our U.S. pork producers. As you know, the past year has been very rough for them. Prices were already declining when they were sent into a tailspin following the H1N1 influenza pandemic, as the world incorrectly tied the outbreak to swine.

This new opportunity provides a timely boost to this important sector of the agriculture industry during tough economic times.
