USDA predicts rise in pork production
The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) is forecasting a 3% increase in
commercial pork production in 2007 to 9,8 billion
This estimate, based on the December Hogs and Pigs report, assumes continued
high feed costs will likely force carcass weights to remain at 2006 levels.
Increases in exports and decreased poultry production may help offset higher
pork supplies and translate into lower pig prices than in 2006.
