Liu Yonghao, member of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference and chairman of the New Hope Group, said in an interview that under the influence of the "double epidemic" of African swine fever and new crown pneumonia, the number of live pigs in China has dropped significantly, leading to rising pork prices. He said that pressure is also a motivation. Many pig farming companies, including New Hope Group, are actively exploring and seeking changes, such as introducing equipment such as automatic temperature control, feeding, manure removal, and epidemic prevention robots to make pig farming intelligent. Liu Yonghao said that recently there are many other industries such as real estate, Internet and other industries that have entered the pig farming industry. He believes that when more and more people come to pay attention to and develop the pig industry, the problem of pig shortage will be solved.
Regarding the price of pork that has attracted much attention, Liu Yonghao said that it has gradually decreased from the highest price in recent months, but it is still higher than the normal year. He believes that it is entirely possible for pork prices to return to normal as pigs grow more and more. The situation of high pork prices will gradually improve in the next year.
