Hey Maschhoff, do you really think those 550 hog farmers are going to dry up and blow away because you don’t want to cut your margins and sell American produced hogs, right here in the US??? Do you think the US consumer doesn’t know what the Chicoms’ had in mind when they purchased Smithfield? Think melamine in your bacon,, dude, and stop whimpering.
Someone should remind the whiners of what Trump did for them in passing tax reform.
Let the greedy bastards utilize a portion of the 40% income tax reduction they received to offset the tariffs.
The American consumer doesn’t eat nearly enough meat to consume all we produce.
The US farmer exports boatloads of meat daily.
Plus we have to burn tons of feed grains to keep from being buried under mountains of corn.
