TOO MUCH OF A GOOD THING

Food banks across the U.S. are flush with meat, cheese and milk due to the USDA’s effort to help farmers hurt by tariffs. Even with the extra distributions from the USDA, cold storage facilities are full as farmers continue to outproduce demand. And while some economists see a breaking point in the future, others aren’t so sure. “Chicken is making money, certain parts of beef are making money, certain parts of the pork industry are making money,” said economist Bill Roenigk. “So, in that sense, if you’re making money, the signals are you should continue to do what you’re doing or produce a bit more.” (NPR)
