Bacon Is About To Get Very Expensive, Very Fast

If you plan on having a bacon cheeseburger or topping your baked potato with real bacon bits then you’d better bring home the bacon ASAP as the price of bacon is about to go up very quickly. A virus that has never been seen in the United States until now is killing millions of baby pigs all across the country.

The disease called porcine epidemic diarrhea, or PED (kind of like Parvo for pigs) has just been recently discovered in Montana but in South Dakota has already killed between 150,000 and 200,000 pigs. Unlike a lot of bacteria, this particular strain flourishes in colder weather and farmers expect as temperatures warm up, the growth of PED, for which there is no vaccine, should be stemmed so hopefully the rising pork prices will affect us less in Montana than other states.
