CHINA 2020 PORK OUTPUT DOWN 3.3% Y/Y AT 41.13 MLN T
BEIJING, Jan 18 (Reuters) – China’s 2020 pork output fell 3.3% from a year earlier to 41.13 million tonnes, data showed on Monday, as the impact of a devastating epidemic in its hog farms continued to be felt.
China slaughtered 527.04 million hogs in 2020, the National Bureau of Statistics said, down 3.2% from the same period a year earlier.
Its pig herd rose to 406.5 million heads at the end of December, from 370.39 million at the end of September. (Reporting by Dominique Patton; Editing by Himani Sarkar)
