Abstract : Various models relating to the storage of pork bellies are studied. An analysis of covariance is used to determine if specific regional weekly storage totals can be used to predict national monthly storage totals. A technical forecast model in the form of a Fourier series is presented, derived from past national storage data. Finally an econometric model relating pork belly demand, change in storage supply, hog slaughter, and total pork belly supply is formulated and fitted to the data base. (Author)
