Fewer little piggies go to market

Australian pig producers did not need a dose of swine flu to be in troubled times. Figures from the Australian Bureau of Statistics this morning show that they were in trouble already. At 367 thousand in March, pig slaughterings have declined 14% over the past year.
Perhaps the answer to a further drop in pork eating in the face of concerns raised by the latest flu scare comes from the Chinese - give away some star aniseed with every pork chop.
