Summer pork demand improves, in part due to higher prices for competing meats. June pork supplies should be at the lowest point of the year.

The pork cutout continues to track higher thanks to robust prices for bellies as well as escalating values for both fat and lean pork trimmings. In the past, we have highlighted the relationship between 50CL beef and 72CL pork trim. This quarter the value of 72CL pork trim has been well under trend but that appears to be changing.
