The first page of the February 2019 issue presents a review of the latest Danish pig census – fewer pigs will come to market in Denmark. Page 2 presents charts on the levels and growth rates of pig populations in the EU broken down by category. Page 3 reports on the global pig price cycle. Page 4 presents the EU pig price data for February 2019 and export trade data for 2018. Page 5 presents the export sales data for Canada – they finish the 2018 on a positive note. On page 6 the USA’s exports have slowed again – volume and value of exports are down in November 2018. On page7 Australia’s trade data are presented. Pages 8 we see the trend for Japanese demand for imported pork is levelling off. Page 9 reports on the continuing growth in pork imports into the South Korean market in January 2019. Page 10 reports on the Chinese market: prices may be on the move upwards – but it’s all very confusing. Page 11 presents the news in short with short reports on Danish Crown, The Philippines, Vietnam, Mexico, Japan, the WTO and China, and Rabobank’s Q1 2019 pork report. On the back page there is the price monitor for 18 countries and the chart of the week – key destinations for EU pigmeat exports, and the short view of pig prices in the USA, EU and China in the next four weeks.
