Worldwide bacon shortage ‘unavoidable’
By Claudine Zap | The Sideshow – 6 hrs ago
Is it pork-ageddon? Britain's National Pig Association has sounded the alarm that the world should brace for an "unavoidable" bacon and pork shortage next year.
The cause of the trouble is high pig-feed costs caused by what it describes in a press release as "the global failure of maize and soya harvests."
The organization notes that new data shows that pig herds are declining at a significant rate, not just in Britain, but around the world.
The way out of this coming catastrophe is to subsidize pig farmers to stem the loss of their herds, says the industry group. The organization has also launched a "Save Our Bacon" campaign, which encourages consumers to buy British pork products.
Pork-ageddon indeed! I think this is one of those signs of the apocalypse I keep hearing about. "Behold as he opened like a seal and junk, and there was no bacon and stuff. It really sucked!" Come on, comet! :pray:
The modern definition of ‘racist’ is someone who’s winning an argument with a liberal.
See there you go again, over stating the facts & exaggerating.
Worldwide bacon shortage
Really ......... the whole world ....
No wait ...... even better ......
= Universal bacon shortage =
Oh oh .....
multi universal Bacon shortage ...
That should sell a few news papers .....
No bacon drought for Australia:
From: AAP September 26, 2012 1:28PM
BACON lovers can rest assured an international pork shortage is unlikely to affect Australia.
AUSTRALIA WON'T SUFFER A BACON SHORTAGE LIKE THE ONE PREDICTED IN EUROPE, THE INDUSTRY SAYS. AAP
Warnings emerged earlier this month that drought in the United States and grain shortages across Europe meant many pig farmers have cut their herds, which could hit supplies of bacon and pork in 2013.
But Australian Pork Limited (APL) says Australia won't see any such shortage.
All fresh pork meat is from Australian animals.
Australia saw record imports in July as European farmers downsized their herds, an APL spokeswoman told AAP.
"If you look at the report (of shortages) itself, it eventuates from England," the spokeswoman said.
"We virtually import no product from England."

this story is another beat up .....
Yes there will be bacon shortage's in several 3erd world country's who are to poor to be able to pay for or provide food to their citizens.
But outside the euro-zone & the USA ...... there is no such bacon shortage.
As the article i posted sez.
Australia will see no such shortage as we produces much of our food & do not need to rely on imports from other nations.
the original reports also come from the failing economy of Great Britain ..... & As the Article i posted points out Australia imports next to zero pork products from Great Britain.
& im sure the likes of New Zealand who also produce most of their own food supplies would be in the same camp as Australia.
So in short ......
It's not much of a world shortage, when most the world still has ample bacon & pork products to provide for themselves.
Maybe the topic should be titled .... (( third world bacon shortage ‘unavoidable’ ))
because it's clearly not a WORLD WIDE bacon shortage, is it now.
