The September 2011 issue of Whole Hog begins with a report on the North American herd. Page 2 covers the EU and notes that Europe's producers are treading water whilst "looking for the exit". August data has set a new record high for the global pig price - as predicted in earlier issues of Whole Hog. The EU's pig prices are up - as shown on page 4 - but confidence and supply are not increasing. Page 5 illustrates the way in which the Canadian herd has shrunk. Page 6 deals with Canadian export data at the half year point. US export growth levels off as shown by the data on page 7. Page 8 describes the Australian trade data - imports fall across the board. The Japanese market cools down whilst the US wins market share and page 9 also shows how South Korean imports move onward and upward. News in Short on page 11 describes; Russia's draft plan to raise agricultural production, the FAO's food prices outlook, Belgian plans to reduce the number of pigs, the exit of farmers from Dutch farming, and Swedish calls to ban Finnish pork and eggs from their market. The Price Monitor for 17 countries completes the back page alongside a report on Smithfield's Q1 2011 results.
