China - South China swine industry: a goldmine for U.S. hog breeders

Sales in 2008 of U.S. purebred breeding swine in South China were brisk. Supply shortfalls, driven by increasing demand and decimation of animals due to an outbreak of blue ear disease in 2006, as well as governmental support of the swine industry to increase production and tap rural markets spell opportunities for U.S. breeders. Their supply of healthy, strong and productive U.S. purebred stock to China ensures top quality generations to come. This report examines production and market trends to uncover what the future holds for American hog breeders.
