BEIJING, Oct 21 (Reuters) – Pork supplies in China, the
world’s top consumer, will be 30% higher during this year’s
Lunar New Year holiday from the same period a year ago, said an
agriculture official on Wednesday, after significant efforts to
rebuild a depleted hog herd.
Producers have built 12,500 new large-scale pig farms in the
first three quarters of the year and restarted more than 13,000
empty farms, an official also told reporters.
