Pork prices on the rise

Shoppers will notice an increase in their grocery bill because the cost of cold cuts is on the rise.


A deadly virus is driving up the price of pork.  

 

Only 10% of the country’s pigs are affected.  

 

The virus hit Indiana this winter, and farmers are starting to feel the damage and now need to raise prices in order to bring home the bacon.  

 

Compared to last year, the price of pork has gone up 15%, but it is expected to go down by October.
