Minister of Agriculture and Rural Affairs Han Changfu said on May 22 in the first"Minister Channel"of the two sessions of the National Conference in 2020 that the current hog production is recovering well and the goal of hog production this year can be achieved.As the production of hogs resumes,the supply-demand relationship will gradually improve,and the price of subsequent hogs will not increase significantly.
However,Han Changfu pointed out that a complete recovery of hog production still requires a process,so all aspects of the work cannot be relaxed.There are still fluctuations in the recovery of live pig production in individual provinces,and various measures must be strengthened.
For the prevention and control of African swine fever virus,Han Changfu said that it is necessary to establish normalized prevention and control measures,and the whole chain prevention and control should be implemented in the breeding,transportation and slaughtering of pigs,and the African swine fever epidemic situation must not be allowed to rebound.At the same time,the country is also accelerating the research and development of African swine fever virus vaccine.
A reporter asked if the price of pork has decreased recently.Does this mean that the production and supply situation of hogs has improved?Can you tell us something about this?
Han Changfu replied that pork prices have indeed declined recently.The wholesale market has declined slightly for 13 consecutive weeks,a 23%drop from the peak,and roughly 12 yuan per kilogram.
Han Changfu introduced the current production and supply of live pigs in two sentences.
The first sentence is that the current recovery of live pig production is good,and the achievement of this year's live pig production target can be expected.The Party Central Committee and the State Council attach great importance to ensuring stable production and supply of live pigs,and have issued a series of policy measures.The local government has also taken a lot of measures and brought out some real money.The government is encouraging the promotion of live pig production.At the same time,in terms of the market,due to the better market conditions,the market enthusiasm is also very high.The investment in pig farming is increasing,there are many new pig farms,and the supplement of the fence is increasing quickly.The momentum is still very good.The Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs is scheduling the production of pigs on a monthly basis.Since October last year,the number of capable sows has stopped falling and has rebounded for seven consecutive months.By the previous month,it had increased by 18.7%compared with September last year;It has also been growing for three consecutive months.The ability to breed sows and live pigs is the core indicator of live pig production.From these two indicators,the momentum is still good.Following this momentum,it is still very promising to achieve the goal of restoring the production of hogs this year,that is,to return to the level close to normal.The Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs judges that as the production of live pigs resumes,the relationship between supply and demand will gradually improve,and the price of pork in the future market will not increase significantly.
Second sentence,the complete recovery of hog production requires a process,and all aspects of work will not be relaxed.The Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs dispatches and monitors that there are still some local policies that support the production of hogs that are not yet in place.There are also some provinces where the production of hogs resumes and fluctuates,and some have quite large volatility,so various measures must be strengthened.The general considerations are as follows:One is to implement the responsibility.The Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs has already issued the target task of restoring hog production in various regions.The next step is to supervise with relevant departments to consolidate local responsibilities.It is everyone's business to raise pigs and eat meat.Everywhere should do this work.The second is to focus on policy support.The central government has issued 19 policies to support pig production,including pig farming policies,financial credit policies,correction of unreasonable prohibition and restriction policies,etc.These policies must be implemented to mobilize the enthusiasm of enterprises and farmers.The third is to catch big and small.According to my country's national conditions,live pigs raised on large-scale farms accounted for 52.3%,and small and medium-sized households accounted for 47.7%.To develop leading enterprises,through leading enterprises to drive small and medium-sized farmers to jointly supplement the fence and increase their nutrition,while improving the level of epidemic prevention.The fourth is to prevent and control African swine fever.The African swine fever virus has been colonized in my country and is a serious threat to live pig production.It is necessary to continue strict prevention and control,establish a normalized prevention and control mechanism,and prevent,control and supervise the entire chain in the areas of pig breeding,transportation and slaughter,and must not allow African swine fever to rebound.At the same time,the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs is also accelerating the research and development of vaccines.Recently,the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs,the Ministry of Public Security,and the Ministry of Transport are launching a"100-day special crackdown action",which is to severely crack down on illegal and illegal transfer of live pigs,and resolutely prevent the spread of the epidemic in the live pig transportation.In short,we believe that with these measures in place and perseverance,the pig production and supply situation will definitely improve significantly.In addition,the current production situation of cattle and sheep and poultry is also very good.Through hard work,we will ensure that there is no shortage of meat in the bowl of ordinary people.
