Canadian Hog Statistics - Second Quarter 2009

Canadian producers had 6.7 cent per fewer pigs on farm on 1 July 2009 than a year previously, and the breeding herd was down 4.6 per cent, according to the latest quarterly report from Statistics Canada. The combination of US COOL regulations and perceptions of the H1N1 virus caused the number of pigs exported from Canada to drop by more than one-third for the first half year of 2009 compared to the same period in 2008.
