New FAO Meat Price Index

The FAO Meat Price Index has been revised to better reflect the structure of world trade in meat products...

The FAO Meat Price Index - March 2014 

The FAO Meat Price Index averaged 185 points in March, 2.7 points, or 1.5 percent, above February. The main driver was higher bovine meat prices, which were associated with dry weather conditions affecting production in both Australia and the United States. Prices for pigmeat also rose, in part on concerns over the effect of Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea virus on export supplies in the United States. Prices of poultry and ovine meat were only slightly stronger.
