The finding of ASF in the Dominican Republic. What about China's sow herd rebuilding? David Bauer, senior analyst for Cargill explores.

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 in the week ahead.

Weekly pork exports were up 57% versus prior week and represented 17% of the week’s pork production, marking the 7th highest production of the year. Year-to-date slaughter is down slightly from year ago.

Is China rebuilding its sow herd? If so, how will the U.S. replace these exports? What about the Dominican Republic and its finding of Africa swine fever? Bauer shares his thoughts on these topics and more.

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 [email protected]
