AgFeed begins hog stocking in China's Guangxi farm
AgFeed Industries Inc, an international agribusiness company with operations in the US and China and one of the largest independent hog producers and manufacturers of animal nutrients in China, announced that it has begun the stocking of animal inventories in its hog farm in Da Hua city of Guangxi province.
The delivery of live hogs to AgFeed's first western-style hog production base in Da Hua represents a milestone for the introduction of advanced western-style technologies and methods for the hog production in China. The production base will now begin operation.
John Stadler, AgFeed's Chairman stated, "The initial stocking of our Da Hua farm complex marks a significant step forward in the execution of our core strategy of 'AgFeed, government & famer.' Having worked in close cooperation with local government in the development and construction of this facility, we are now in a position to begin breeding operations. We expect the first animals from this production base to reach the market in the late winter/early spring of 2012."
