China: Delayed Expansion in Chinese Swine Herd

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   CH2021-0050

Swine numbers are not likely to rebound until at least mid-2021 if the current African Swine Fever (ASF) outbreak is brought under control. In late 2020 a resurgence of ASF reduced China’s population of breeding sows and piglets. These losses continued through the first quarter of 2021 as ASF outbreaks were reported in multiple provinces.
