USDA predicts strong long-term meat demand will push livestock prices up, bringing profitability back to the complex. This eventually leads to increased production. Per-capita pork consumption falls from nearly 51 pounds in 2007 to 47 pounds in 2011. It then rebounds to 48.7 pounds by 2016. Meanwhile, beef bounces from 65 pounds, currently to 61.6 in 2012 to 63.2 in 2016. Poultry wavers between 103 to 105, ending up around 105.7 in 2016.
