    Several meat packing plants around the country have shutdown and I am being told 3 in Oklahoma will shut down tomorrow. Make sure your hunting and fishing licenses are up to date and if not working, fish.

    Interesting Smithfield is shut down. It is owned by a Chinese group.

    Hmmmm. I’m gonna have to check into that. Kinda weird they’d shutdown since they’ve been making the biggest profits in the “farm to plate” chain since this corona virus hit.

    Yep. Just got off the phone with a guy that usually knows details of such things and that’s what he said. Said there’s a pork plant up in the one of the Dakotas with a few thousand employees and 300 of em tested positive for CV. Supposedly they are doing a thorough cleaning and getting gear to go back to work.

    Bright side, if meat really does get scarce, wild pig populations could take a big hit.

    I saw on noon news that several meat plants had already shut down and shortages are expected in some areas so I cashed my stimulus check and scooted over to Wally World and stocked up on the really choice stuff before the neckbeards wipe it all out.

    Forget TP and ammo the new battle cry is........HOARD MEAT !!

    I'm good......
