NATIONAL CARLOT PORK
As announced on January 7, 2013, AMS implemented a 1-week delayed publication
schedule to facilitate the pork industry's transition from voluntary to
mandatory pork reporting. Concerns have been raised by pork industry
representatives that more time is needed for the industry to examine, explore,
and understand the new information afforded by mandatory wholesale pork
reporting. AMS will continue releasing daily mandatory pork reports on a 1-
week delay until further notice. AMS officials will confer with industry
representatives monthly to re-evaluate the situation until such time that a
transition to normally scheduled reporting can be implemented with minimal
disruption to the industry. In any case, however, "real-time" release of
mandatory pork reports will begin no later than July 8, 2013,
which is 6 months following the effective date of the Final Rule.
