ABSTRACT
The article reports that the hog industry of Canada is starting to recover. According to Kevin Grier, senior analyst at the George Morris Centre, the industry in 2013 is about 25 percent smaller than it was in 2004, but the part that survived is more resilient and more competitive. He states that feed costs have risen, resulting in further reduction in profits, but the main problem from the perspective of pork producers is the non-barrier tariff imposed by the U.S. through its labeling law.
