China, by far the world's largest pork producer, has seen its volumes fall steadily since 2012.
In other parts of Asia, Japan's total hog slaughter
increased modestly in 2016 to 16.393 million head, up
2 percent from 2015, lifting total production to 1.279
mmt, also up 2 percent. Philippine hog production
grew almost 5.5 percent in 2016. In Taiwan, meanwhile, the 2016 hog population was 5.44 million head,
down 1 percent from the year before.
According to the USDA, the major factor influenc-

ing pig production in Ukraine will remain the spread
of African Swine Fever (ASF). Many new cases were
discovered in households and among the wild pig population in 2016. However, no major pork producer was
impacted by ASF. Swine producers reduced production
and are concentrating on satisfying domestic demand.
The pork production decreases are expected to slow by
the end of 2017. ■
