The front page of the September 2009 issue of Whole Hog reports that the Canadian herd is shrinking – but more slowly. Page 2 describes how the Brazilian pig industry is feeling the heat. Page 3 portrays the pig price cycle as it “loses a wheel”. German pig numbers go against the EU trend on page 4 whilst there is a further fall in EU pig prices on page 5. Canadian exports drop back slightly on page 6 but US pork exports head for the floor in 2009 on page 7. Australian exports plunge in the latest data shown on page 8. On page 9 Japan appears to be cutting back on pork exports from almost all sources and ditto for the South Koreans. Page 10 presents short reports on; Russian imports, Vietnam’s plans to build the biggest meat processing complex in the country, EU pigmeat exports, the Austrian pig inventory, UK slaughterings, and Danish live pig exports. Company information reported on page 11 describes; Zhongpin’s expansion programme in Changge in Henan Province and its results for Q2 2009, Cargill’s results for the fiscal year ending 31 May 2009, and Agfeed Industries’ (China) results in Q2 2009. The Price Monitor for 17 countries completes the back page.
