Schulz authors Wallaces Farmer article

Associate Professor Lee Schulz authored a recent article for Wallaces Farmer. Schulz article focuses on how pork producers are reducing production even though pork prices are projected to stay high. In the article, Schulz says that "On the surface, pork producers trimming production in the face of continuing strong hog prices defies logic. However, pork producers pulling back in the face of feed costs up almost 20% compared to a year ago — and up nearly 80% from two years ago — makes perfectly logical sense."
