The front page of the August 2011 issue of Whole Hog reviews the way in which currency volatility has created a uniform price for pigs across the three major exporters. The Danish breeding herd takes another dive according to data shown on page 2. Page 3 predicts that the gobal pig price is set for another new high. A look at the Spanish pig sector on page 4 shows that there are fewer pigs and fewer farmers in that country. In the EU's farm incomes report on page 5 there are winners and losers. EU pig prices show a recovery on page 6 whilst awaiting harvest prices for grains. Page 7 details Canadian export sales and suggests they are being held back by availability. Page 8 records US exports and stocks growing.  Page 9 describes Australian imports being squeezed as domestic production increases. Japan's appetite for imports fades at the half year mark on page 10 whilst South Korean import levels point to a record year as the FMD impact bites. News in Short on page 11 covers; UK consumer demand for animal welfare products being held back by retail prices, Tyson Foods Q3 and interim results for fiscal 2011, Cranswick's Q1 trading update, and a French move to allow a voluntary agreement between producers, processors and distributors to deal with price volatility. Company results on page 12 provides a repprt on Zhongpin's earning in Q2 2011 and its expansion and investment plans for the rest of the year. The Price Monitor for 17 countries completes the back page.
