Pork Bailout

According to the Iowa Pork Producers Association the USDA has bought roughly 72 million pounds of pork valued at $117 million through commodity programs, and that more will be purchased when the government’s new fiscal year begins on Oct. 1. This means that our government actually bails out the pork industry when it overproduces and buys up volumes of surplus pork, typically by dumping these surplus commodities into our nation’s schools, child care centers, and domestic food assistance programs.

While we have not much control of where our tax-payer money goes, we can take a stand against the meat industry by not purchasing or consuming their products. This is one way to show good stewardship of our financial resources.
