Bacon prices are falling

Posted: Updated:
Bacon lovers can rejoice!
 
The hog shortage that sent pork prices to new highs last year is finally over.
 
It was a year ago that pork prices surged after a deadly virus killed millions of pigs. Since then, vaccines have slowed the spread of the virus, leading to record pork production in December.
 
According to the USDA, pork production last month totaled 2.11-billion pounds, up two-percent from December 2013. That has consumers now paying less for bacon, ham and other pork products.
