Pork demand has been excellent this summer with pork production up 2% in June and pork cutout rising 10% from the previous year.

Hog production has been rising consistently in the last few months although the pork supply increase has been slower than slaughter growth due to lower carcass weights.  June hog slaughter was 9.870 million head, 3.2% higher than a year ago.  Q2 slaughter total stands 29.2 million head, 3.7% higher compared to a year ago.
