Yes you should....It doesn't even matter what that link you got there says....the answer to "should I stock pile bacon" is ALWAYS YES!

Speaking of...I just ordered 80lbs of pig. Mmmmmmmm...

The article doesnt reference a "bacon shortage," but rather a general increase in the price of all meat, being that feed costs are increasing. If it were just bacon, you might see a reduction in the cost of other pork products.

Right now is the best time to buy meat, if you can buy in bulk. The increase in feed costs (for grain fed) as well as a drought impacting the costs of hay (for grass fed), leads farmers to liquidate their stocks. Seeing as beef takes two years to grow, this liquidation will impact meat for several years.

Pork doesnt take as long to grow, and most pigs have multiple births, so pork prices will stabilize faster than beef.

I knew it would come to this after what they did to "The Guttenberg" , but this time they've gone to far with their marionette show and manipulation...we've got to stop them people!

Who robs the cave fish of their sight? Who rigs every Oscar night? We do! We do!

Truth.

Here's the answer I gave last time to this question:

http://paleohacks.com/questions/138476/should-i-stock-up-on-meat-before-the-drought-pushes-up-food-prices/138486#138486

It depends on how much space you have now versus your guess on the future price of bacon.
