ELMA, IA – JULY 25: Workers make sausage as they process hogs at Elma Locker & Grocery on July 25, 2018 in Elma, Iowa. The locker custom butchers hogs and cattle and other livestock for area customers. According to the Iowa Pork Producers Association, Iowa is the number one pork producing state in the U.S. and the top state for pork exports. The state sends about 50 million hogs to market each year and its pork exports totaled more than $1.1 billion in 2017. Pork producers in Iowa are bracing for the impact a trade war with China and Mexico may have on their bottom line going forward. (Photo by Scott Olson/Getty Images)
