Bacon shortage worldwide 'unavoidable' UK pig group says


By Tiffany Hsu, KTUU
Might want to get your fill of ham this year, because "a world shortage of pork and bacon next year is now unavoidable," according to an industry trade group.
Blame the drought conditions that blazed through the corn and soybean crop this year. Less feed led to herds declining across the European Union "at a significant rate," according to the National Pig Association in Britain.
And the trend "is being mirrored around the world," according to a release. The announcement was first reported in the Financial Times.
In the second half of next year, the number of slaughtered pigs could fall 10%, doubling the price of European pork, according to the release.
The trade group urged supermarkets to pay pig farmers a fair price for the meat to help cover the drought-related losses.
In U.S. warehouses, pork supply soared to a record last month, rising 31% to 580.8 million pounds at the end of August from a year earlier, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
The surge came as farmers scaled down their herds as feeding the animals became increasingly expensive.

That's it. 3/4 of you fuckers are converting to Islam or Judaism. I'm generally a nice guy, so I'll let you choose. But that's what it's gotta be.

The Second Amendment to the BP Constitution very clearly states, "A well regulated Saturday breakfast being necessary to the happiness of Me, the right of the people to keep and bear bacon shall not be infringed."

I was driven to have a BBBLT myself, tonight. I skimped on the lettuce to make room.

Oh fuck this is bad.

Bacon and avocado, that's my favourite sandwich. Little bit of lemon juice on the avo, bit of A1 Bold & Spicy on the bacon.

I'm going to have to eat even more pig ears to satisfy my pork cravings. Bacon may be in short supply, but I'm sure we'll always have plenty of pig ears in the USA.

Thanks to this thread, I now know that the pieces of meat in the neighborhood Korean store (samgyupsal) is actually bacon, and how to eat it Korean-style, too. :D

I think it is hilarious.... You do realize that there is Turkey and Beef bacon, and both taste better and many are kosher.... ;)

Yep, saw one at the aforementioned Korean grocery a beef version of the samgyupsal. It was identified as beef because there was a cartoon cow sticker on the package. :D Same thing for the pork samgyupsal, a cartoon pig sticker on the packaging. :D

Nothing like a BLTEM made with fresh tomatoes from the garden. Fry up some bacon, fry a egg, layer them on toast with lettuce and tomato, add a decent mayo and you're set.

You are welcome to all the lesser bacon you want.
I am happy to sacrifice bacon to keep the bellota flowing.

Thankfully, I have rifles in .30 & 7.62NATO and the woods in the South are full of porkers--also, they are considered pests, so no season and no limit--yet.
