The front page of the November 2008 issue reports the latest Danish pig census data as it hits a  10 year low. Page 2 describes the Canadian pig census results – as hog numbers fall off a cliff.  Page 3 reports our latest analysis of global pig prices and the drivers pushing the trend even higher. Page 4 describes the fall in feed prices after the 2008 harvest results.  Page 5 details the EU’s pig price changes and notes that they remain at a high level. Page 6 describes the Canadian trade data and  shows that pork exports are still growing. But US pork exports are growing even more strongly as shown on page 7. Page 8 presents the Australian pigmeat import data and these increased in August – although the trend is levelling off.  Japan’s imports are moving up but domestic stocks rise too, as reported on page 9. On the same page South Korea’s imports are seen to be slightly up. Page 10 provides short reports on; the USDA’s approval of export standards fro nine Mexican pigmeat plants, the signing of a pigmeat export protocol for the Netherlands for trade with China, Russian meat imports, and Chinese inspections of US meat export plants.
