Supply of hogs in the Philippines will remain tight at least over the next few months as cases of porcine epidemic diarrhoea (PED) are on the rise.
Dr Civilo Lima, General Manager of Villa Aida Farm told Asian Agribiz. He said that prices of hogs will likely be high in June and July, when farm prices are traditionally lower, because there will be less pigs available during the period.
Dr Lima also noted that PED will continue to be a problem for the country’s hog farmers.
