Max Armstrong looks at the extent of African Swine Fever and its impact on pork production

Max Armstrong shares insight on African Swine Fever, a disease that only affects animals, but the illness is devastating to swine herds. Max offers a look at the impact of the disease on Chinese pork production, which may take out more than 20% of the country’s herd. The disease has spread to Vietnam, and in Europe there’s a problem with wild pigs (but not commercial herds).

Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
