ASF , expect 30 to 50% less pork
Production in China for 2019.
its a Toughie....Vietnam for instance has broke w 330 ASF cases in just the past 3 weeks.
The China kill off this year is expected to be 300 to 500million hogs due to the African Swine Fever.
It's going to take quite a bunch of other proteins to fill e chinese gap now.
matter of fact one needs all the fingers and toes counting that much in beef. LoL.
Re: ASF , expect 30 to 50% less pork
Some Bigshots in the Farm Bureau just got back from a China trip and were going to visit a cattle feedlot, but it got cancelled because of a outbreak of hoof & mouth disease. So they have all sorts of problems.
FMD or foot and mouth disease tends
To follow ASF....seems like Every ASF break is followed immediately by FMD.
i think the 2 diseases are somehow Closely Related.
matter of fact I'd Bet on it.
