The May 2010 issue of Whole Hog reviews the latest Danish pig census data on its front page. The Danish pigmeat export data for 2008 and 2009 and the live pigs export numbers since 2005 are analysed on page 2. Page 3 describes yet another high for the global pig price series.  An analysis of major exporters’ hog prices and the impact of volatile exchange rates is provided on page 4. EU pig prices fall across the board on page 5. Page 6 describes the continuing herd contraction in Canada. Canadian exporters’ efforts to gain traction for their exports are described on page 7. Page 8 details the way in which US exports have yet to get on a rising trend.  Australia’s trade figures give little cause for comfort to the pig industry down under. US exports start 2010 badly in Japan according to the trade data on page 10 and the South Korean market also seems to falter in the early 2010 trade data. Page 11 provides the New in Short articles covering; pigmeat production in Vietnam, Spanish pigmeat exports, changes in EU pig numbers described by country, Ukraine pig numbers, and Czech pig herd data and pig performance data. Company results on page 12 include Danish Crown’s interim results, the Cherkizovo Group’s pork production in its new plants, and Maple Leaf Foods’ Q1 results ended 31 March 2010.  The Global Price Monitor for 17 countries completes the back page.
