    The latest data released by the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs shows that since mid-October, pork prices have seen a shock and rebound.
    At present, the average pork price in the national agricultural product wholesale market is 21.
    25 yuan/kg, which is slightly higher than the cost line

    .
    Monitoring by the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs shows that at present, China's live pig production is still growing inertially, the market supply is loose and abundant, and the price downward cycle has not yet ended

    .

    Yiyang, Hunan: Difficult to ship piglets in eight months, price drop by 90%

    The price downward cycle has not yet ended, and for pig farmers, it is not yet time to replenish piglets
    .
    The reporter recently discovered during an interview in Hunan, the main pig producing area, that piglet shipments are still sluggish

    .

    In Yiyang, Hunan, piglet farmer Zhang Rongguo ushered in its first business in three months
    .
    Early that morning, he personally went to the pig farm to catch pigs, hoping to sell more piglets

    .
    After some bargaining, an average of more than 50 catties of piglets was finally sold at a price of 7.
    5 yuan per catty.
    In the end, 200 piglets sold for less than 70,000 yuan, but the cost of raising these piglets was about 140,000 yuan

    .

    Zhang Rongguo, a piglet breeder in Yiyang City, Hunan Province: The price fluctuates from the sky to the underground.
    During the New Year, we have a 20-jin piglet, and the guaranteed reserve price is 1,500 yuan and 1,600 yuan.
    Now our 20-jin piglet is 150 yuan.
    People want

    .
    I still have to sell it at this price.
    If I don’t sell it, I can’t do it.
    There are more than 2,800 piglets in the barn and there is no place to close it.
    My fat pig farm is also closed, and the money in my pocket is gone.
    I can only choose to sell it at a low price

    .

    Zhang Rongguo told reporters that although the current pig price has rebounded to a certain extent, the market outlook is still unclear
    .
    Especially in the off-season after the Spring Festival next year, pig prices may continue to fall

    .
    Coupled with high feed costs and the risk of African swine fever, most pig farmers are not willing to make up for slaughter

    .
    Piglet farmers have also accelerated the elimination rate

    .
    Wu Haixiang is Zhang Rongguo's first customer in three months.
    He has more than ten years of breeding experience, and he has no idea about this year's market

    .
    However, he decided to take a gamble.
    After all, the price of piglets is the lowest since he started his career

    .

    Wu Haixiang, a pig breeder in Yiyang City, Hunan Province: This truck of piglets is just a gamble on next year's market, and they dare not do more
    .

    Hunan: Many leading pig companies' pig farms have "broken tails" and farmers have cleared their stalls and left the farm

    Not only are retail investors clearing the market, but even some large-scale farms have also been unfinished
    .
    In Datong Lake, Hunan, a farmer Feng Liang brought reporters to an vacant pig farm, which was leased to him by a large-scale listed pig company in Jiangxi at the end of 2019

    .
    After signing a five-year contract with the other party, Feng Liang invested more than 3 million yuan as required to expand the site and upgrade the equipment.
    Now it has been rented for less than two years, and the building is empty

    .

    Feng Liang told reporters that since the beginning of this year, there have been at least dozens of such unfinished pig farm projects in Hunan
    .
    Basically, these large-scale farms entered the farm last year.
    The scale of farming ranges from more than a thousand heads to as many as 50,000.
    However, as the price of live pigs dropped at the beginning of this year, these large-scale farms also accelerated the pace of exit

    .
    Feng Liang said that he originally wanted to use his vacant pig farm, but the current market conditions put him in a dilemma

    .

    Industry insiders: the inflection point has not yet come due to increased volatility in pig prices

    The reporter learned that in September, the loss of pig farms across the country reached 76.
    7%

    .
    However, since October, the price of live pigs has rebounded

    .
    What kind of market will this trend show? Has the turning point of the pig cycle come?

    Xia Chenfeng, an analyst for the rural credit interconnected pig industry: At the end of September, the stock of reproductive sows increased by 16.
    7% year-on-year, and the supply of pigs and pork is still growing inertially

    .
    Higher frozen meat stocks and increased slaughter volume of live pigs both limit the height of pig prices.
    In the first half of next year, pig farming is still facing the possibility of losses

    .

    Industry insiders said that since July, the number of reproductive sows in the country has ended its growth momentum, and has decreased for three consecutive months.
    It is expected that the number of pigs for slaughter will gradually reach its peak in the second quarter of next year

    .
    The "Implementation Plan for Pig Production Capacity Regulation" recently issued by the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs also proposes to release pig production monitoring information in a timely manner to improve the construction of pig production and market monitoring and early warning systems

    .

    Kong Liang, deputy director of the Animal Husbandry and Veterinary Bureau of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs: In the next step, in order to accelerate pig breeding out of the predicament and prevent major fluctuations in pig production and supply, our ministry will implement local tiered control responsibilities in accordance with the requirements of the production capacity control plan, and focus on doing a good job.
    Live pig production capacity reduction work, strengthen production and market monitoring, timely issue overcapacity warnings, encourage farms and households to speed up the elimination of low-yielding sows, take advantage of the trend to produce fat pigs, so that pig production capacity can return to a reasonable level as soon as possible

    .

    In addition, industry insiders reminded that in the face of possible low price fluctuations of pigs in the later period, the breeding entities must adjust the stock structure and reduce the stock appropriately
    .

    Xia Chenfeng, an analyst for the rural credit interconnected pig industry: For farmers, the two most critical points to reduce losses across the cycle in the future are to control the flow of funds and reduce costs and increase efficiency
    .
    And the most important point is that when prices are low, farmers tend to overlook the health of their pigs.
    Especially in the winter when swine diseases are at a high incidence, the prevention and control of African swine fever still cannot be slackened
