According to FAS (USDA) report, Mexican pork roduction is forecast one percent higher to a record 1.325 MMT CWE. The effective efforts to control the PED virus, ample availability of animal feed, especially grain at lower prices combined with new breeding lines, will contribute to higher slaughter weights allowing production of more meat from fewer hogs. Thus, swine will continue to be slaughtered at around 130 kg live weight with a carcass weight of around 82 - 84 kg.

Higher beef prices and the price differences among beef, pork, and poultry continue leading to a reduced beef per capita consumption while pork’s attractiveness will contribute towards increased demand. Despite a stronger dollar, the pork import will be supported by rising prices for beef and a growing population. Mexico looks for the full development of export markets in Asia to steadily grow its exports to these markets.
