Research Background

Livestock farming profit in China in 2012 shrunk a lot compared with 2011. Hog price dropped and ran at low level continuously, profit of hog farming industry was basically around low level since the beginning of the 2nd Quarter. Profit level of broiler farming industry dropped as well due to the decreasing chicken price, certain enterprises with poor management even suffered serious deficit. For layer breeding industry, market condition was quite gloomy and certain enterprises shut down gradually from production capacity surplus in the first half of 2012, egg price increase was noted till the 3rd Quarter, which dropped again in the 4th Quarter.

In spite of the price increase of beef and mutton, increase of breeding profit level was not that obvious. In conclusion, continuous increasing cost and slower consumption demand are the major factors that caused the decreasing livestock-poultry breeding profit level.
