Korea finishes ASF cull while China replenishes herds

Korea finishes ASF cull while China replenishes herds

Posted: Updated:

China flies in over 900 breeding pigs from Denmark to replenish their herd.

Reuters reports this is the first import of live breeding stock since the first African Swine Fever outbreak last year. Reuters reports, the virus wiped out more than half of China's herds, while official government reports estimate losses at much less. Many Chinese producers are building new farms and restocking herds that were previously infected.

Meanwhile, Korea finishes culling hogs infected with African Swine Fever. South Korea's Ministry Of Agriculture tells Meatingplace.com they culled all more than 145 thousand animals at 13 infected sites and farms. Officials say that number could rise over the next week. According to Reuters, Seoul processors have been buying hogs from areas infected with ASF.
