Whole Hog Brief Issue 188, September 2010

Price: £35.00

The September 2010 issue of Whole Hog begins with a report on the Canadian herd – it’s déjà vu all over again. Page 2 describes the impact of exchange rate changes on major exporters’ prices. The volatility in key exporters’ prices has not affected the direction of movement of the global pig price – as shown on page 3. North American herd data illustrate more falls in US and Canadian sow numbers on page 4. Page 5 shows Danish pig prices rising whilst EU prices are generally weak. Page 6 provides an overview of pig farming’s structure in the EU as drawn from the latest EuroStat Statistics in Focus publication. Page 8 details solid export results shown in the Canadian data. The USA’s pork exports are forecast to take off in 2010 by the USDA and this reported on page 8 along with the latest export figures. Page 9 describes how Australian pork exports seem to have recovered in the month of June but the half year data imply a faltering performance.  US pork sales to Japan show an upturn on page 10. Also on that page the South Korean imported-pork market seems to be unable to match the growth in beef imports. Page 11 provides short reports on; German meat production, Dutch meat production and exports, Austrian pigmeat consumption,  an agreement between China and Denmark on imported pigmeat standards, and Russian meat production. Company information reported on page 12 describes; Cherkizovo’s latest investment plans in Russia in the Tambov and Voronezh regions, Zhongpin’s expansion programme in Anyang city in China, the interim results of China’s Yurun Food Group for the half year ended 30 June 2010. The Price Monitor for 17 countries completes the back page.
