Dr Ross Ainsworth’s Market Report

This is one piece of news from Ross’s April report that needs to be monitored:
"The important news for this month was the announcement that African Swine Fever (ASF) has been confirmed in Vietnam and neighbouring Cambodia. With a very large proportion of mainland S. E. Asian families having pigs in the back yard for waste disposal and personal consumption, the likelihood of rapid spread is extremely high. The impact on the region’s pork industry will be enormous with control measures extremely difficult to enforce given the very porous borders of the Greater Mekong region where smuggling is a way of life."
