China's southern neighbor is now experiencing ASF deaths and mass swine cullings. Domestic meat lines, feed output are all impacted, as are imports of meat and feed crops. Recovery is expected to be quicker and easier than it will be for China but a pork import trend could also be starting.
ASF-induced hog mortality may exceed the combined swine inventories of the US, Canada, Brazil, Germany and Spain. Worst estimates are now just average, market signals to grow more pork are being ignored and meat imports are skyrocketing.
Vaccines lead the way with disease prevention. Led by probiotics and reformulated traditional supplements, a wide array of natural products are taking over the anti-inflammatory functions once performed by AGPs.
