There is a sharp reduction in the number of pigs in China, which is associated with the rapid spread of African swine fever throughout the country.
Recall that the first outbreak in China of this especially dangerous viral disease occurred in 2018. According to statistics from that moment, the number of pigs has halved.
Outbreaks still occur, although their intensity has significantly decreased. Large companies that pay increased attention to biological safety and modern farms are afloat. They not only protect their livestock from ASF, but also work to restore the total livestock.
In this regard, in 2020, imports of pork to China will increase. According to forecasts, Rabobank is expected to get more than 4 million, which is approximately 33% of the required amount. The main countries importing pork are Brazil and the USA.
