Supreme Court Decision Alters California's Pork Industry Landscape
South Dakota Ag Connection - 05/23/2023

In a significant decision, the United States Supreme Court has brought changes affecting pork producers doing business in California.

Starting July 1st, pork farmers must adapt to comply with regulations for marketing hogs in California. The use of gestation stalls, previously protecting sows, now faces scrutiny. Implementing these changes comes at a significant cost, potentially impacting meat prices. However, there may be opportunities for producers who can meet California's requirements, creating a potential premium market.

Pig producers remain resilient and committed to providing excellent care and affordable, high-quality products.

These stories exemplify the evolving landscape of the agriculture sector, encompassing regulatory challenges faced by farmers, their unwavering resilience, and the pursuit of sustainable and impactful solutions.
