Pork prices are on the rise and American hog farmers have reason to predict higher profits.
It’s , and the timing couldn’t be more fortuitous. Across the United States (U.S.), the demand for pork is rising, with elevated hog prices that are expected to last through 2019 and well into 2020.

This is great news for pork producers, and even more reason to celebrate our nation’s hog farmers this October.
