I know several farmers in this area who have switched to raising lamb. They get good prices for the lamb, they can pasture them, switching to finishing them with grain about a month before they go for slaughter. Others have switched to goat for the same reason. Adult ewes weigh less than sows so are cheaper to over winter. Others have switched to turkeys or broilers.

Lambcon just doesn't have the same ring to it. Or the same flavor I would imagine.

I don't know that one could make a similar product...turkey bacon just isn't bacon. I checked the pork futures this afternoon. Right now, the prices are mixed, whereas cattle futures are slightly higher. The problem with futures and trying to guess if prices will go up or down is if the farmer opts to sell before the contract date.

Will all those empty tin cans and other vessels that we store bacon fat in go to the Smithsonian? Will they become valuable antiques? Will illegal bacon fat become the new "drug of choice?" Will we all take to sniffing bacon fat? The world is going to hell in a hand basket.

Stocked up this weekend on bacon (and some other pork) at Costco.
Got 12 packs of bacon at $3.79 each.
Checked the Kroger store later, the no name generic crap
bacon was 3.89, all the brand names ranged from $4.75 to $8.99.

I think I bought two packages this past year and ended up giving them to my son unopened.
