The May 2011 issue of Whole Hog writes up the latest Canadian pig census data on the front page. The Danish herd census data and export numbers for 2009 and 2010 are reviewed on page 2. Page 3 details a new peak price for the global pig price cycle. An interview with the Chief Sustainability Officer of Smithfield Foods occupies Page 4. Page 5 describes the latest changes in EU pig prices. An analysis of the UK's herd census suggests there may be sign of an upturn on page 6. The top 10 German abattoirs are also tabulated on that page. The North American herd data is reviewed on page 7 and it looks like it has finally hit bottom.  Page 8 covers the Canadian trade data for Canada - a sluggish start to the year. In contrast, US pork exports seem to be flying off the shelves on page 9. Rising Australian production and  exports narrow the trade gap in the Australian market on page 10. Japanese pork imports are boosted by US pork on page 11 whereas the FMD outbreak drives South Korean market to new heights. News in Short on page 12 covers PIC activities in Vietnam and Korea; the UK industry's roadmap document , Rabobank's presentation of the future of the global meat industry, and the latest moves in the EU to label meat including methods of slaughter. Company results on page 13 include Vion's restructurng plans in the UK and Maple Leaf Foods results for Q1 2011. The Global Price Monitor for 17 countries completes the back page.
