Jiangsu Pig production stabilizes and picks up the increase in the amount of Pigs in Jiangsu Province
Xinhua News Agency, Nanjing, 23 Nov (Reporter Zhao Jiulong) on 23 November, the reporter learned from the Department of Agriculture and Rural areas of Jiangsu Province that, as a major province of pig production and consumption, while doing a good job in the prevention and control of classical swine fever in Africa, Jiangsu has taken many measures to curb the decline in production. The monitoring of 8100 large-scale pig farms in the province by the agricultural department showed that at the end of October, the storage rate of live pigs increased by 1.8%, and that of breeding sows increased by 14.4%.
Since August this year, Jiangsu provincial finance has allocated 261 million yuan in subsidies to support various localities in the prevention and control of African classical swine fever and the resumption of pig production. We will co-ordinate special funds for the development of modern agriculture at or above the provincial level in 2019 to support the construction of epidemic prevention facilities in pig farms and large-scale pig farms.
It is understood that Jiangsu provincial finance will increase by another 135 million yuan in the near future, the province's breeding pigs and local pig biological conservation subsidies, to start pig breeding in major counties to subsidize the policy. In addition, various localities have arranged for more than $500 million to support pig production.
Jiangsu has also innovated the security policy for breeding land, standardized the management of prohibited areas, incorporated the land for the development of pig industry into the territorial and spatial planning of various localities, and included the demand for land for development in line with the planning and ecological recycling of pig farms in the plan for new construction land. Encourage the use of urban and rural construction land linked to savings indicators to ensure the development of pig industry land.
According to the analysis, at present, the construction of pig farms in the main producing areas in Jiangsu has been accelerated, the increase in raising in the main selling areas has been promoted in an orderly manner, and pig production capacity will be further restored.
