ERS contributes to shortrun and longrun hog and pork market
outlook activities through several venues.
Working with USDA's Agricultural Marketing Service, Farm Service
Agency, and Foreign Agricultural Service, ERS hog analysts develop
monthly estimates of pork supply, use, and prices reported in World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates
(WASDE), released by USDA's World Agricultural Outlook Board.
Monthly and quarterly hog industry data and hog market outlook are
also provided in ERS's monthly Livestock, Dairy and Poultry Outlook.
ERS takes a lead role in preparing USDA's Agricultural Baseline
Projections, which provide longrun swine and pork market outlook.
