Probably time to buy that chest freezer I have been eying.

wouldn't that make our prices go down? Would it not force the suppliers to sell closer to home?

If Mexico puts a tariff on pork imports, it should increase the supply available for US consumers thereby leading to lower domestic prices. I still am looking forward to the EU imposing a tariff on US bourbon exports...

i had a local supplier of mine tell me he expected pork prices to drop significantly in the coming weeks.

Hey, turnabout is fair play here.
Shouldn't they allow as many pork legs as wish to walk across the border?

Pork producers are already hurt by China's 25% tariffs on U.S. pork.

And it seems China owns Smithfield.

They will keep buying it. But at a steeper price. They have no other sustainable substitute.
Prices will drop momentarily while the market adjust.
