Pork demand leads to soaring hog prices

Posted: Updated:

With grilling season and BLTs galore, the demand for pork is causing hog prices to increase.

All-day breakfast menus in addition to the summer season have something to do with the rising pork prices. Analysts who watch the market say foreign exports account for about 22 percent of U.S. pork production.

Mexico has placed large orders for U.S. pork. With seasonal trends, it's possible prices will go up even more between now and Labor Day.
