pork due to arrive in the December-March period. They have also agreed to sign
no new contracts until April 1980 and hold December-March arrivals in bond until
April. Pork which has already cleared customs will be placed in "isolation"
until April.

Although this is a voluntary program with no checks on performance--there has
been no formal intervention by the Japanese Government--this action will place
a virtual embargo on pork sales to Japan until at least April 1980.

The Japanese pork market is in a temporary oversupply situation with consider-
able carcasses destined for "isolation" stocks until supply and demand come
into balance. Latest estimates are that 10,000 metric tons are already in
"isolation" stocks.
