In this episode of Feedstuffs Precision Pork, Dave Bauer, senior market analyst for Provimi, offers some hog market perspective and market highlights for the week as well as provides things to think about as we enter the new year.
As we are coming out of the holiday disruption period and Columbus Junction comes back on board, the kill this week is estimated to reach 2.58 million head, which would be a new record if achieved. With plants now providing the COVID-19 vaccine to workers there is a renewed level of confidence shaping up. Kill levels will likely reflect that going forward.
How did we end 2020 in terms of kill and where are we at in terms of exports? Take a listen. Bauer explains.
These are uncertain times and it will pay dividends to be well-prepared. If you have questions on this week’s recap or want to discuss something not covered, feel free to ASK DAVE at David_Bauer@cargill.com. Plan today for tomorrow’s success.
