USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) has announced it will not publish the U.S. and Canadian Hogs Report scheduled for October 29.
"In the past, this publication has been released by NASS in cooperation with the Statistics Canada. In September, the Canadian agency discontinued its October Hog Statistics publication, resulting in discontinuation of the two nations’ joint hogs report as well. The next joint release of hog and pig estimates for the United States and Canada is scheduled for February 2013," states NASS.
Juli says: This is certainly a disappointment as the Canadian information provides important information as to the size of the North American hog herd.
