The June 2009 issue’s front page has a review of the latest UK pig census data as herd numbers fall again. The EU’s pig herd, production and trade data are dissected on page 2. The pig price cycle for the world’s major exporters is seen to have turned down on page 3. The Polish herd contracts but there are signs of a revival as Zloty prices rise on page 4.  EU pig prices are described as falling and rising on page 5 depending on whether sourced in the Euro-Zone or non Euro-Zone. Candaian pigmeat exports are on the rise on page 6.  Page 7 describes a similar rise for US pork exports.

The trade gap gets wider on page 8 for Australian pork exports and imports.  On the next page Japan's imports are seen to be increasing in early 2009 but South Korea’s imports fall in the first quarter of the year. News in Short on page 10 covers; Czech meat production in Q1 2009, Danish live pig exports, Ukrainian fresh and chilled pork production, Russian forecasts for the import of pork in 2009, and Lithuanian meat production statistics. Company results on page 11 include details of Cherkizovo’s Q1 2009 results, Perdigao’s and Sadia’s proposed merger in Brazil, and Zhongpin’s plans to upgrade the chilled and frozen pork facility in Changge City in Henan Province. The Price Monitor table of global pig prices for 17 countries completes the back page.
