Supreme court upholds a California law that will require pigs to be held in 24 square foot pens.
Analyst Comment: With water restrictions, taxes and aggressive agricultural and environmental regulations, farming in California will continue to degrade. This will be a long-term trend that places increased pressure on US food prices. Many of these farming operations will not be able to relocate to other states due to the high cost of land acquisition and moving, and will shut down instead. Grow your own food folks!
