My concern with pork production is that the Chinese own a major part of it and they have shown in the past that what's in our best interest doesn't necessarily align with theirs....

All sides participated for profit so there is that commonality.

That may well be true, but once ownership changed hands, the profit part is out the window. I do not knowingly buy Smithfield products.....
Which is a great thing to be able to do in a free economy. Do you support local farmers then? I would like to find a hog farmer that is close by.

Absolutely. I have a friend that has a very, very small farming operation and I'll buy as much of my pork and chicken products from her as I can. But the few she raises are in high demand and she's a one-person farm so little chance of her expanding. I'd buy her beef, but it mostly goes to family. She says that she'd rather raise very little and do it right.
