SPARE PARTS

When you harvest a pig the only thing left is the squeal. But as trade tensions with China ramp up, hog farmers and processors are finding much more than the squeal is leftover. Before the U.S.-China trade war, American pig processors exported nine out of every 10 pigs’ feet and heads they shipped overseas to China and Hong Kong. With two tariffs slapped on U.S. pork totaling 50 percent, processors are now selling those parts domestically for pennies instead of dollars. (Reuters)
