President of Paragon Economics, Steve Meyer, says despite the significant number of birds lost to avian influenza, it`s worth keeping the disease in perspective.

Meyer says the real concern won`t arrive until avian influenza begins to hammer flocks of chickens raised for meat, called broilers. If that happens, he says the impact on broiler exports would be significant.

"The big impact will likely be on the Dec-Feb pig crop and the under-50 and 50-119 pound market hog categories since roughly 60 percent of the total PEDv accessions for all hogs and for suckling pigs have occurred since December 1," predicted Livestock analysts Steve Meyer and Len Steiner Inc. in the Daily Livestock Report.

Steve Meyer, president of Paragon Economics and a Pork Checkoff consultant, estimates the loss of more than 5 million piglets in the past several months, with 1.3 million lost in January alone.
