Time to Invest in Pork?

Maple Leaf Foods, Canada’s largest pork processor might be a good investment this year according to a Reuters report.  The report says that the major pork company will benefit from the currently low grain prices and its stocks are still low after its major food recall in 2008.  The report says maple leaf foods outlook looks “fantastic”. What type of impact will this outlook have for farmers producing for Maple Leaf, will it finally be an opportunity to make a profit? Or will the monopolistic control of the market that Maple Leaf exerts on the industry mean more slim times for farmers and big profits for the corporation and its share holders?
