After a long timethe number of pig slaughterings in slaughterhouses again decreased in the first half of this year. This is partly due to strong demand for live animals in neighboring countries, such as in Romania, which is plagued by African swine fever – Világgazdaság wrote on Friday.

Éder Tamás, president of the Hungarian Meat Industry Association, told the newspaper that due to PRRS depopulation and forced slaughter due to ASP suspicion, fewer pigs were transported to the slaughterhouses. (MTI, Világgazdaság)
