High pork demand noted in Negros Occidental

BY GILBERT P. BAYORAN

There is high demand for slaughtered pigs in Negros Occidental due to the yuletide season, Provincial Veterinarian Dr. Placeda Lemana disclosed.

Lemana reported that 1,644 pigs have been shipped out to other provinces, particularly Luzon areas, for the period from November 19 to 25.

The pigs came from commercial farms and backyard raisers in Negros Occidental, which remain ASF (African Swine Fever) free.

Lemana said Negros hog producers have started increasing production in anticipation of increased demand.

The PVO reported an increase of P2 to P5 per kilo in the price of pork in the local market. The average price of pork is now P255 per kilo to P260 per kilo.*
