Chinese Pork Professionals Training in U.S.

Creating opportunities for U.S. feed grains in China.

To gain a better understanding of the U.S. swine production system Chinese swine industry professionals are in the U.S. for training courses, seminars and farm consultations. The U.S. Grains Council is sponsoring the team. According to USGC Technical Program Manager in China Jason Yan low efficiency has been identified as one of the major constraints to the development of production capabilities on many farms in China. The more efficient the Chinese hog industry - the more productive it will become - allowing farmers to expand to higher levels of commercial scale. Yan says that creates opportunities for U.S. feed grains and co-products in China.


The team spent Thursday and Friday at Purdue University to discuss swine welfare, growth and nutritional impacts on pork quality. This week the team is attending a short course on swine health and disease control at Kansas State University and will then attend the World Pork Expo in Des Moines.
