Industry sources estimate that in 2017, the number of hogs on large-scale farms surpassed that of small-scale farms for the first time. As a result of this increased expansion for large-scale farms, productivity has increased. Herd quality has improved due to enhanced genetics, leading to an increase in pigs per sow. In addition, many operations have undergone vertical integration, increasing access to higher quality feed and improved marketing.

According to USDA, these are the top 5 swine companies in China for 2017:

Company Live Swine Sales (unit:10,000 head)
Wen 1904.17
Mu Yuan 723.7
Chu Ying 250.96
Zheng Bang 342.25
Tian Bang 101.42

Wen is still the largest swine production company in China. The second largest, MuYuan, has undergone a rapid expansion and in 2017 sold 7.23 million head—4 million more than in 2016. Looking ahead to 2018, MuYuan has forecast its sales number will be 11 to 14 million head. Although these large operations will continue expanding in 2018, Post forecasts their expansion speed will slow (with the exception of some very aggressive companies like MuYuan). The reasons for this slowing include downward pressure on the live swine price, increasing environmental regulations and taxes, and competition for land resources.
