Guangdefu, a spokesperson for the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs, recently informed the media that since the outbreak of African swine fever in some provinces of mainland China in August 2018, relevant departments of various localities have strictly carried out epidemic situation disposal, strengthened the implementation of key prevention and control measures, and coordinated the prevention of disease. Control, pork market supply and other work. As of January 14, 2019, there were 24 cases in which there were domestic pig and wild boar epidemics, and a total of 916,000 pigs were culled. At present, 77 epidemic areas in 21 provinces have been lifted according to regulations. The epidemic was spotted and there was no epidemic.

Tang Wei said that the overall fluctuation of pork prices is not large, and the impact of African piglets on the market is limited.
According to Tang Wei, according to the monitoring, the average price of live pigs in the second week of January was 13.65 yuan per kilogram, which fell for 4 consecutive weeks, down 11.2% year-on-year. In December 2018, the average weight of pigs in the country was 124.27 kilograms, which was higher in history. The level indicates that there is still a phenomenon of pressure in the main producing areas; the slaughter of pigs is 9.5% higher than that of the previous month, and the number of pig farms is more concentrated; the pork trading volume of the fixed-point monitoring market has decreased by 14.4% year-on-year, and consumer demand is weak. It is expected that before the Spring Festival, the price of live pigs will remain stable and slightly lower, and the market supply will be sufficient. “Because of the need for prevention and control of swine fever in Africa, some regions still need to strictly control the flow of live pigs and their products, and the possibility that prices in some sales areas will rise will not be ruled out.”

The average price of piglets in the second week of January was at the bottom of the price fluctuation cycle. Therefore, it is recommended that the majority of farm households adjust the breeding structure and increase the replenishment in a timely manner on the basis of the prevention and control of African swine fever.
