Canada: Livestock and Products Semi-annual

The Canadian cattle herd is forecast to contract further in 2018 as slaughter outpaces heifer retention and calf crop production. The Canadian swine herd is forecast to continue to grow marginally through 2018 as global demand for pork remains strong and sow stocks are projected to be up from 2017 numbers. Though the United States will continue to dominate Canadian trade in cattle, beef, swine and pork, Asian markets should offer increased Canadian export growth in 2018.
