Assuming that the current prices of pork remain at high levels because farms and farming households are still selling pigs at VND73,000-VND78,000 per kilogram although 15 livestock enterprises have reduced their prices to VND70,000 per kilogram, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development on April 8 issued a dispatch, calling for them to join hands in reducing pork prices.

Farmers should not take risks to rebuild pig herd

The prices of pork have gradually been increasing as pork supply strongly declined due to African swine fever epidemic. At this time in Dong Nai Province, the capital of pig-farming industry in Vietnam, pork supply is still ensured. However, if the epidemic continues to happen complicatedly, there will be a shortage of pork supply during the end of the year and lunar New Year holidays.
