HOG OVERSUPPLY for farmers means pork bargains for consumers. University of Georgia economists expect retail pork prices to remain low through late 1999. Dennis McDaniel, a meat cutter at Food Depot in Griffin, Ga., stocks the counter with fresh pork products. Request the high-res image. SHARON OMAHEN/ UGA CAES Georgia consumers, though, will soon reap the benefits of the farmers’ woes. “Pork products are going to cost considerably less this holiday season,” McKissick said. “There will be some excellent deals on holiday hams and other pork products. “Overall retail pork prices are expected to drop about 9 percent.” McKissick said shoppers should be prepared to stock their freezers with pork products as prices drop in this “once-in-five-years deal.” Holiday prices for higher-value products such as spiral cut hams will be excellent values, he said. The low market prices have some Georgia farmers pulling out of the hog business. Tift County hog farmer Milton Thompson is one of them. “We’ve decided to liquidate our herd and more or less sell out of the hog business,” Thompson said. “After working the past four or five years for nothing, I don’t think I’ll miss it at all.” This year’s prices forced Thompson to sell his 250-pound hogs for $57 each. That’s far below his cost of production. Last year, Thompson sold the same size hogs for $135 each. Reactions like Thompson’s put shoppers at the mercy of the market, too. Good deals don’t last forever. The rules of supply and demand will soon come back to haunt pork lovers. “As with all meat products, we go through cycles that bring good news to consumers and bad news to producers,” McKissick said. “As a result, farmers are going to cut back on production. That will lead to higher prices in the grocery stores in about nine months.” It will take at least nine months, or until late 1999 for farmers’ cutbacks to result in higher prices, McKissick said. “The consumer has a long time to benefit from relatively low pork prices,” he said. “You won’t find many better deals on pork than you’re going to find right now.” The law of supply and demand will soon work in favor of pork lovers. A University of Georgia expert says an oversupply of hogs is bringing supermarket prices down and forcing Georgia farmers to sell their hogs at a loss. has been disastrous for hog farmers as prices for hogs are much weaker than has been expected,” said John McKissick, an Extension Service agricultural economist with the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. “The hog numbers are so high that farmers are having to sell at prices considerably lower than their production costs,” McKissick said. “Needless to say, hog producers are in a losing position. And the end of 1998 will be the worst.”
highlights New Delhi: The fourth playoff spot is yet to be grabbed going into the final day of league stage in the ongoing edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). While the Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) have an outside chance (only mathematically), the real tussle is between the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). Even Mumbai Indians (MI) will be looking to win their last league game against KKR to claim a place in the top two and have an extra chance to qualify for the finals.With a place in the top two up for grabs, there is no chance of MI experimenting and according to the reports in India Today, they have decided to include the legendary Yuvraj Singh in the playing XI. The left-hander has warmed the bench throughout the season after playing in four matches scoring 98 runs which also includes a half-century in the losing cause. He scored his runs at a strike-rate of 130.67 and this move could eventually turn out to be game-changing for MI. Mumbai Indians is likely to drop one of their overseas players in order to accommodate veteran southpaw Yuvraj Singh in the line-up. Yuvraj Singh, has played in crunch situation and knows how to play in the high-pressure games as one will be against Sunrisers. Evin Lewis seems to be the most vulnerable link in their playing XI at the moment as he hasn’t done well batting at number three. With Quinton de Kock doing well at the top and Rohit Sharma adamant on opening the innings, Lewis had to come down the order and that hasn’t worked for him.Also, with Barinder Sran not performing to the expectations, Beuran Hendricks might make his debut for the Mumbai based franchise. He was roped into the squad as Alzarri Joseph’s replacement and is yet to play a game this season. The left-arm seamer has decent numbers in South Africa domestic circuit in the shortest format and could be a good pick for this crucial encounter.If MI wins this game, SRH will become the first team in the IPL history to qualify for the playoffs with only 12 points to their name. Yuvraj Singh has been able to score 98 runs in four outings this season.Yuvraj Singh scored a half-century in the first game he played in IPL 12. Mumbai Indians are currently placed at number three spot. For all the Latest Sports News News, Indian Premier League News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.
