Amidst the global economic slowdown, China’s economy has met with a new normal. With ever-changing global pork trade, more countries are exporting pork to China. Increasing sources and volumes of imported pork pose a challenge for the Chinese pork market and pig farms running at higher costs.

China’s 13th Five-Year Plan proposes vigorously promoting the modernization of agriculture, blazing a path of safe and efficient production, resource conservation and eco-friendliness for agriculture. According to the National Pig Production and Development Plan (2016-2020), in terms of mode of development for pig production, more attention should be focused on the improvement of quality, efficiency and sustainability. Based on the transformation and upgrading of pig production, the Plan proposes measures such as intensive swine farming, the building of modern swine breeding industry as to improve feed conversion rate, sow productivity, labor productivity and make for the transformation from growth in quantity to growth in quality.

During the period of the 13th Five-Year, as required by the Environmental Protection Law of People’s Republic of China, pig farms in Southern China have to tackle on-farm pollution with some of the designated areas where pig farming have to be restricted or inhibited and some some pig farms relocated to the major corn producing areas and those areas with sufficient environmental capacity. Considering the factors such as environmental protection, feed, land and water, the costs for future pig production are expected to escalate; higher costs involved in environmental protection, feed and labor will become the major limiting factor constraining the development of the pig industry, presenting a great challenge to sustainability.

In China, the productivity of sows is averaged around 14-15 PSY, but in Denmark the number goes beyond 30 and in the United States, it is more than 24 PSY. In comparison, in China, the volume of pork produced by each sow per year is 1-1.5 tons lower. And there is significant gap between the domestic pig farms and those in the developed countries in terms of farm efficiency and benefit. To deal with these issues, The Ministry of Agriculture of the People’s Republic of China continues to advance the standardization of animal husbandry while researching into and promoting effective, economical and comprehensive utilization models of animal waste and eco-friendly development models.

In view of the above-mentioned challenges and from a global perspective, the first International Pig Forum China 2016 is to be held to seek solutions to the development of China’s pig farming industry that balances economic, social and environmental benefits while providing a platform that creates values for pig industries at home and abroad.
