The red ink that pork producers have experienced almost continually since last October is impacting production plans. USDA’s latest pig crop inventory found that producers intend to farrow 2 percent fewer litters during the summer quarter and 4 percent fewer this fall than in 2007. Those are the first significant farrowing reductions since winter 2002/2003.  Given the magnitude of the losses, cutbacks will eventually need to rival that of 1999/2000 to restore profitability.
