Pork Opportunity? 05/30/2013 @ 8:40am Given the reported unhappiness with Smithfield's shareholders and the skepticism of some U.S. legislators, this move may shine some light on opportunities for alternative pork producers to arise. I bet Murphy Family farms loves this deal. I noted that the Chinese official Long liked the Smithfield vertical integration. I bet he did. And, I would bet the next step in vertical integration is to get to the feed processing facilities and eventually the corn field. The Chinese are going to find that vertical integration only goes about so far and maybe they are about there already.
