This is Bob Larson with the Market Line Report for Friday, Mar 1st. A trade deal with China again leaves uncertainty in Thursday hog trading. From the floor of the CME in Chicago, here's Terry Roggensack.

ROGGENSACK ... "Longer term, we're going to see a clash, a big supply against expanding export activity, at least in the case of China. If production, in the second half of the year is down 15% from a year ago and China wants to replace that, that would be the equivalent of importing 1.54-billion pounds month. If the U.S. shares 25% of that, that would be equivalent to 385-million pounds per month that China might be importing from the U.S."
