    Genesus Global Market Report: USA (April 12, 2017)

In this case, the developments in the Middle East should not have any relevance on the hog market, as there is not a lot of pork consumed in that region. There is a lot of speculation about the new packing plants coming on line, as it should increase competition between packers. But remember, a very large part of this shackle space is used by the vertical integrators, so unfortunately that may limit the space packers will actually have to bid against each other.
