USDA's Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) launched a new National Weekly Comprehensive Pork Report under the Livestock Mandatory Reporting program, a 1999 law aimed at providing greater marketplace and price transparency. Drawing on data from the National Weekly Negotiated, Formula, Forward, and Export Pork Reports, the new report will provide a more complete picture of the pork market in a single report. It will also include an estimated cutout value of a standard pork carcass based on the various cuts and their prices. Values and volumes will reflect marketplace activity for all destinations (including export), sales types, delivery periods, refrigeration types, and packaging styles, with the exception of specialty pork products. Additional information about Mandatory Market Reporting can be found on the AMS website.
