The front page of the February 2010 issue reports the results of the latest Danish pig census. The German pig census is reported on page 2. A  feature on the Dutch meat company VION occupies page 3. The global pig price cycle data on page 4 confirms Whole Hog's forecasts that prices are moving up in 2010. On page 5 EU pig prices continue to move down. The census data for the Polish pig herd on page 6 suggest the herd is increasing but Whole Hog asks, where is this going?  On page 7 Canada's pork exports hold up despite herd cutbacks whilst the USA's pork exports look for an upturn on page 8.  Page 9 details the widening trade gap for pigmeat in Australia. The Japanese market data show a marked slump in October 2009 and the South Korean market is also well down on last year on page 10. News in Short on page 11 covers; Dutch piglet exports, Czech meat production, UK farm incomes, Mexico's recovery from Swine flu effects, and Ukraine livestock populations.
