Figures from the Council of Agriculture show that from October to Wednesday, about 127,000 piglets died after contracting porcine epidemic diarrhea (PED), a gastrointestinal disease that is mild in adult swine populations, but often deadly for younger swine.

Piglets have become difficult for farmers to buy, as 80 percent of those under 20 days old succumb to the disease.

As a result, the market price of a single young pig has skyrocketed from the regular NT$900 to NT$1,400, according to Pan Lien-chou, Swine Association.
