    This is a major issue as it would mean the disease is in the water, or at the very least an illegal movement of sick hogs took place increasing the potential of it spreading to the herd there and elsewhere. The Chinese government is taking further action to crack down on the illegal transport of hogs and working to limit the spread in slaughterhouses as well. Increased fines and jailtime were announced for those found to be illegally transporting sick hogs. While new requirements announced this week force a slaughterhouse to shut down for at least 48 hours and cull all hogs present if contamination is discovered... While the idea of increased pork imports has really helped to firm cash hogs and the hog market outlook as a whole, the Chinese feed demand potential being lost is something that should not be ignored...

    How to Source Farm Interns

    By Gregory Heilers

    Published 11 months ago

    The Keenans were up to their elbows in infrastructure projects, animal husbandry, and a burgeoning farmstay business, and needed help in a bad way. Balancing a post and beam, lime plaster home construction project against caretaking goats and chickens, while juggling four human kids to boot, left the Keenans with little time for their personal lives. So, the family turned to the outside world for help. As a recent college grad excited about farming, I responded to their advertisement, and soon found my way to the delightful Keenan homestead... That land supports “just under 1,000 head of cattle, about 5,000 laying hens, 600 hogs per year, 20,000 broilers, and 2,000 turkeys...

    The disease which is deadly to hogs was initially found 2 weeks ago and reported as an isolated incident. The country’s second outbreak this week was found over a thousand miles away in a group of hogs that had traveled a long distance... Some feel this is bullish for US hogs as a reduction in Chinese supply would mean import needs for the country. Others feel this could be bullish for domestic meal demand as an increase in US hog exports would mean more hogs to feed here... · Hogs also happened to get a nice shot in the arm from Mexico trade talk...

    · A week full of rumors, confirmation and headlines gave everyone a lot to talk about, but surprisingly left the markets somewhat directionless. · The week started with Reuters reporting China was looking to purchase 5-8 mmt of soybeans and that sales were just days away. President Trump agreed in an interview Tuesday saying China was in the market buying large amounts. Excitement continued to build into Wednesday as additional news reports indicated $180 million worth of sales had been finalized, with subsequent reports indicating even more buying throughout the day... · As we’ve discussed before, ASF is incredibly deadly to hogs and has been spreading across the country like wildfire...

    • Not much in the way of significant news throughout the week, as typical for this time of year in the grain markets most traders are already in holiday mode. Soybeans have managed to hold their own after a rough start to the week, while corn and wheat are testing the downside of the most recent trading range... • In addition to divided ideas on how the country should deal with trade tensions African Swine Fever was confirmed in the country’s largest pork producing region, with officials announcing a significant crackdown on the disease and transportation of hogs going forward. It is obvious containing the disease is nearly impossible as many producers are still working to transport hogs or hide expected cases... Cold storage was friendly to hogs with frozen belly stocks at a 52 week low, while overall pork stocks were down 5% from a year ago...

    -USDA Hogs and Pigs report this afternoon
    -USDA reports HRW sales to Iraq, SRW to Egypt

    * A wire service poll of Brazilian ag industry participants revealed average expectations of the Brazilian soybean crop at 114.2 MMT vs CONAB’s last estimate of 113.5 MMT and USDA’s 116.5 MMT. The range of ideas was 112.1-116.5 MMT, while last year’s crop was 119.3 MMT. The average estimate of the safrinha corn crop was 66.2 MMT vs last year’s crop of 53.9 MMT. CONAB was last at 66.6 MMT. The range of ideas was 61.2-69.9 MMT.

    * As US/China trade talks resumed in Beijing today, wire services are reporting a US trade official said China made unprecedented proposals on several factors including forced technology transfer as they continue to work to strike a deal. Progress is clearly being made, even on some of the tougher issues, but the official still said, “We aren’t yet where we want to be.” Additional comments included, “It could go to May, June, no one knows.
