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.
