On the 15 day, the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region held a press conference on stabilizing pig production protection market supply in Nanning. Liu Jun, director of the the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region agricultural and rural department, said that it will adhere to the "prevention and control of African swine fever" and restore pig production "two hands, two promotion", take measures to stabilize pig production, and strive to ensure the supply of live pigs.
Since April 2019, the production of pigs in Guangxi has been affected by the superposition of African swine fever and "pig cycle", and the production capacity of live pigs has continued to decline. According to statistics, by the end of September 2019, 15 million 270 thousand pigs in Guangxi had been reduced by 34%, of which 1 million 783 thousand sows had been sown, and 32% had been reduced; 21 million 326 thousand of the first three quarters had been reduced by 17.3%.
Pig industry is a pillar industry in Guangxi's agriculture and rural economy. Since this year, Guangxi has raised 658 million yuan to implement relevant policies and measures of central and autonomous regions against animal diseases such as swine fever in Africa and support policies for pig production. By promoting the mayor responsibility system of vegetable basket, implementing various supporting policies, strengthening technical guidance, actively butting large pig raising enterprises to promote project landing, doing pig production monitoring and increasing publicity, and other measures to stabilize pig production, ensure market supply and maintain economic and social stability. Up to now, the downward trend of pig production has basically been curbed. According to statistics, by the end of September, Guangxi's pig farm chain grew by 4.3%, of which 3.6% of the sow population grew by 3.6%. In the first three quarters, 10 million 250 thousand and 800 pigs were slaughtered, a year-on-year decrease of 10.14%, and the supply of live pigs basically met the needs of the market.
