Re: China importing more US pork

    One thing that it implys to an open mind is their unquenchable appitite for protien value added products.How much pork should a country like China be able to produce on their own in a very short time.Shows what the current life style and demmand truly is be comming.Now think of the possibilities of China being short one of the major grains about half the time,makes for a very voliatal future!

Re: China importing more US pork

Is there charted data on yearly meat exports compared to years past?  I will do some reading.  If the increase is substantial, I wonder how much hidden grain export it would account for?

Re: China importing more US pork

One factor that has been grossly neglected by the naysayers is value added exports. We have had basically flatline demand for exports of raw commodities for years in ag. The doom and gloomers always point this fact out. What they don't talk about is the incredible increase in meats,DDGs and ethanol we have enjoyed. We have basically built in a cushion for this country in case of bad supply times ahead.

Re: China importing more US pork

Is this more in dollars or in total volume?

 

China is importing huge amounts of dry dairy products. only problemis it is all from NZ!

 

And they have begun to buy that countries dairy infrastructure.
