Global pork production forecast rises by 2% as Chinese production rebuilds

The USDA has released its latest view on world markets and trade for livestock. 2020 forecast global pork production has been raised by 2% to 96 million tonnes, still 5.5% lower than in 2019 , AHDB analyst Jennie Tanner reported.

The rise is largely due to higher than expected pork production in China, which is in the midst of producers rebuilding their herds to take advantage of high domestic prices in the wake of African Swine Fever (ASF), which decimated the country’s herd.
