    Any thoughts on why this stock draws so much short interest? I see earnings volatility due to commodity exposure in the chicken feed, but otherwise I see: conservative balance sheet, solid capital allocation by management, and tailwinds from health trends as people eat less beef and more white meat. Are the bears just waiting for the next drought?
