The Korean Ministry for Food, Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (MIFAFF) announced that it will attempt to stabilise the domestic cattle and pig markets in response to the ongoing price falls and rising livestock numbers.

To control the domestic pig herd growth, MIFAFF is expected to slaughter 80,000 head of low producing sows and 100,000 young animals, along with lowering the ‘full grown’ pig classification from 115kg to 110kg to increase supplies. In addition, the authorities will promote pork consumption through discounting.
