Canada is ahead of Brazil 's third-largest pork exporters in the world. The Canadian herds to 25% have shrunk over the last 10 years. The reasons were in fierce competition for the world's largest exporter United States, export restrictions in the neighboring country of border, high feed costs and the currency-related disadvantages of a become stronger Canadian dollar.  In the meantime, there has been privately organised stable fallow land premiums for the period of 3 years, to reduce the Canadian pig farms to a market-oriented level.

With stagnant domestic consumption, the additional amount will go back to the export. Main sales area is the Asian region with Japan, South Korea, Philippines and others

More hit by the Russian import ban are Canadians . The Russia business accounted for about 15% of their exports of pork. The currently favourable sales opportunities in the Asia export opportunities a compensation of of part of. The estimated amount that a price reduction by the Russian import ban on a scale from 1 to 3% will be to cope with.

For the international pork trade the bid amount will improve again, as in other major production areas again slight increases to recognize are. To what extent the Russian import lock a dash through the Bill does, will depend on the duration of the action. Whether it is for a year, is still completely open. A shortening and extension are equally conceivable.
