The front page of the August 2010 issue of Whole Hog records the latest Danish herd census data which seem to show that the herd recovery has faltered. The Danish export data for Q1 2010 is reviewed on page 2. Page 3 suggests that the global pig price cycle looks weak on the upward swing. Page 4 describes the German pig industry’s position: the herd is down but exports are up. On page 5 the EU’s pig price recovery is seen to be taking a holiday. Page 6 details the continuing growth of Canadian exports. Page 7 records signs of an upturn in US exports.  Page 8 describes how imports have jumped again in Australia. Page 9 shows how Japanese imports have made up ground and how Chilean exports are making progress in the South Korean market.  News in Short on page 10 covers; Russia’s pigmeat production, the Czech Republic’s pigmeat production and performance data for the pig industry there, EU production of pigmeat, and Danish exports of live pigs to Germany.  Company results on page 11 include;  Maple Leaf Foods’  Q2 2010 results, and Zhongpin’s latest expansion plans. The Price Monitor for 17 countries completes the back page.
