Vietnam to restock national herd with 20,000 pigs imported from Thailand
VIETNAM will im- port 20,000 breeding pigs from Thai- land this year as the country seeks to re- build its hog herd bat- tered by an African swine fever outbreak.
minister Phung Duc Tien said the first batch of 250 pigs has been imported from Thailand and they are expected to start pro- ducing piglets by the end of this year.
First detected in Feb- ruary 2019, the African swine fever outbreak has forced the culling of around six million pigs – 20 percent of Vietnam’s pig herd – resulting in higher pork prices and putting upward pressure on in- flation.
Prices of the im- ported pigs range from $A841.22 to $A971.14 each.
While not harmful to humans, African swine fever is devastating in pig herds with no avail- able vaccine.
Where pork accounts for three-quarters of meat consumption, in March the Vietnam government said that the country’s inflation could be at 4.22 per- cent this year if pork prices can be cut.
Deputy agriculture
Tien said local firms had sought permission to import a total of 110,000 breeding pigs this year.
