US cold storage warehouses full of meat

High meat supplies in the United States for the last 5 years

The United States come with their meat industry from the frying pan into the fire. After last year, beef and pork were particularly scarce and expensive, reaching highest meat supplies this year, not seen in the last 5 years.

Nonetheless, beef in the United States rather scarce, because cattle farmers suffering from drought years have mined their mother herds. First-year reconstruction of the herds begins with prices of well over €5 per kg. It takes heifers, which otherwise are led to slaughter. In the meantime, beef must be imported expensive. Here, the strong dollar but avoids the prices.

It is now different with the pork . The high prices have resulted in a considerable increase in the sow - and pig stocks in the previous years. And still the average slaughter weights are around 3 to 5 kg higher than the average of the years. Pork supplies are with collection date Apr 30, 2015 by 20% over the previous year. Bacon accumulates up 66% to as 2014. An accumulation of such exceeds the usual seasonal increase in for the barbecue - season. Therefore, it is assumed that further increases will be no longer required. It is hoped that demand increases significantly with the barbecue season and on the supply side with increasingly warmer temperatures usually slaughter weights lower fail in the summer.

Poultry meat accumulates on stock levels, which are 31% higher than the five-year average. The problem generally caused increasing poultry stocks last year in order to compensate of lack of beef and pork quantities. The overhang problem by the poultry virus H5 N2, which is epidemically spreading through the United States along the Vogelfluglinie of missisippi worsened this year. The type of virus to humans is actually harmless, but which has a variety of poultry meat importing countries limits for US origins made sealing.

This is the biggest problem in the late summer/autumn , if migratory birds move back from the North to the South. In the South-East of the United States, the focus in chicken meat production, which has been spared so far from the poultry virus.

Currently still good average U.S. hog prices should play to again significantly in the autumn. This leads to increasing exports on the world market, with the result of increasing competition on EU exports.
