DES MOINES, Iowa ó On the June 12 Agribusiness Report: The price of pork will depend on what part of the animal you want. But, no matter what you buy, itís not going to be cheap. The latest USDA numbers show prices are rising as the Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus continues to kill hundreds of piglets.

One of the largest pork producers in the United States announced it is eliminating its use of confinement cages. Cargill will move to group housing for sows producing hogs by the end of next year. The switch will go into effect at contract hog farms by 2017.
