I talked to a buddy of mine at a local butcher shop this morning and the current butt prices here are $2.69 a pound. He said that a disease has hit the swine industry and that all of the ones that would of been going to slaughter now were the ones effected. Therefore a shortage of slaughter hogs is whats causing the price increase.
