Starting at the beginning of next year it may be hard to find bacon in California and if you do, you're going to pay a lot more for it.

All because of an animal preposition that was approved by voters in 2018 that requires more space for breeding pigs, egg-laying chickens and veal calves.

National veal and egg producers are optimistic that they can meet the new standards, but only 4% of hog operations now comply with the new rule. According to one estimate, in order for pork producers to meet the new standard they will have to clear about 15% more per animal for a farm with 1,000 breeding pigs.
