Rabobank: Global pork prices may recover in 2013

Rabobank, in its latest report, has expressed the expectation that global pork prices will remain under pressure in the first part of the fourth quarter, followed by a recovery in prices at the end of the year and in early 2013. This recovery will begin when supply increases because of the increase in slaughter and shrinkage of the herd caused by high grain prices.

Global pork prices will remain strong in 2013, driven by production cuts caused by the higher cost of feed and higher costs related to animal welfare in Europe. As always, imports by China remain a doubt, but with the recent expansion of the herd (despite low profitability) and its environmental characteristics, Rabobank is not expecting a significant increase in imports in the short term.
