Pork production in 2006 is forecast lower in the third quarter due to lower-than-expected slaughter in July and August. In 2007, production is reduced because of lower forecast imports of hogs from Canada.

Pork exports in 2006 and 2007 are reduced because the pace of shipments is expected to slow. Price forecasts for hogs and broilers are also raised slightly for 2006. Continued strong demand is expected to support hog prices in the third quarter.
