The finding of African swine fever on a farm in Germany made the news this week along with disappointing pork sales here in the U.S.

July 16, 2021


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.

While African swine fever has been in the wild boar population in Germany since 2020, this week it was identified in a domestic herd for the first time.  The organic-based operation does allow its sows to go outdoors.

In terms of weekly pork sales, Bauer said they were a bit of a disappointment this week. Is there a recovery ahead? Take a listen for his best guess.

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]
