Meanwhile, a report earlier this month from USDA’s Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) (“China- Falling Hog Numbers Pressure Import Demand for Oilseeds“) stated that, “China’s soybean imports are estimated to fall to 84 million metric tons (MMT) in marketing year (MY) 18/19 . “Poultry and swine represent a major proportion of the world’s livestock industry,” he explained. “One of the largest costs of production – about 70% – is feed.” Through his research, Aderibigbe aims to improve livestock’s ability to take in nutrients and increase the digestibility of their feed through added enzymes. Available as a hardbound, two-book set, the handbook includes 1,+ pages produced by swine experts at Purdue University and 18 other land-grant universities, nine state pork boards, and the National Pork Board, in cooperation with the U.S. Pork Center of Excellence and pork checkoff program. We work with key actors from these regions through our in-country offices to develop actionable research analyses and recommendations on country-specific agricultural initiatives. Beyond these areas, we also work with other country partners through our global research programs and networks.

Swine have been used mainly for research involving the cardiovascular system because of their unique anatomy and physiology, which makes them similar to humans (Swindle, ; Stanton and Mersmann, ). Cardiovascular diseases in which the pig is a useful model include atherosclerosis, coronary arterial stenosis and infarction, congenital.

In total, the swine industry accounts for percent of agricultural water use in the region. The remaining percent of agricultural water use is attributed to other irrigated crop production ( percent) and other direct livestock use ( percent).

Industry Advisors Donnie R. Depopulation of commercial swine operations would likely take place on-site to reduce disease spread. One suggestion made by the swine industry for humanely killing large numbers of swine is to utilize enclosed dump-bed trucks or trailers as on-farm carbon dioxide (CO2) depopulation chambers.
