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 prepare for a new year.
There still a large book of 2020 purchases to be shipped to China but those will likely be rolled into the new year rather than canceled, say Bauer. There was a speed bump on the slaughter side of things this past week as the Columbus Junction pork plant ran into some mechanical issues and diverted hogs to other plants. What has that done to slaughter numbers this week and what’s been the market impact? What will the upcoming holidays mean for weekly totals? Take a listen.
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]. Plan today for tomorrow’s success.
