LONDON, April 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

2012 was a challenging year for meat producers such as Tyson Foods Inc. (NYSE:
TSN), Smithfield Foods Inc. (NYSE: SFD), Hormel Foods Corporation (NYSE: HRL),
and Pilgrim's Pride Corporation (NASDAQ: PPC) as the worst drought in U.S.
history led to higher feed costs. Feed costs are expected to remain high this
year as well. The crucial thing, therefore, for meat producers will be to
achieve operating efficiency and costs control. On Monday, shares of meat
products companies ended on a mixed note even as the broad market managed to
pare all of its losses in late trading to finish the day higher. StockCall has
