USPOULTRY statement regarding court’s stay on CERCLA/EPCRA emissions reporting mandate

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Colombia Circuit has issued a three month stay, until Nov. 14, 2017, before producers will need to start filing reports for emitting low level concentrations of ammonia from poultry houses and layer farms. The stay is a result of a motion from EPA requesting time that would allow the agency to develop guidance to assist farms with addressing the difficult task of measuring emissions of ammonia into the air from decomposing animal waste – a point recognized by the court in its April 11, 2017, decision. The order issued by the court does contemplate the possibility of an additional extension beyond the
Nov. 14 date. Read more

South Korea lifts ban on U.S. poultry, egg imports: USDA

South Korea lifted a ban on imports of U.S. poultry and eggs, the U.S. Department of Agriculture said on Thursday, allowing American farmers to resume sales to the Asian country that suffered an egg shortage caused by its worst-ever bird flu outbreak. South Korea was importing more U.S. eggs earlier this year as it fought its own outbreak of bird flu. But in March, the country limited U.S. poultry imports after the first U.S. case of bird flu of the year was detected on a commercial chicken farm in Tennessee.  Read more

Dr. Thomas Elam, FarmEcon LLC, to speak at CPF Conference

“In an environment of more stable feed costs, U.S. meat and poultry producers have ramped up output at a record rate. In 2015 and 2016 we set all-time records for total production, and the 2017 forecast is to break 100 billion pounds for the first time. Next year is forecast at a record 103 billion pounds.

Per capita disappearance is forecast to reach 220.7 pounds in 2018, up from 201.8 as recently as 2014. If USDA is right, we will be very close to the 2007 pre-recession/ethanol record of 221.7 pounds per person. With keen competition from rapid production growth, what can we expect in terms of 2018 prices and costs?”
