, and prevent massive increase which may lead to oversupply, causing the selling price to drop deeply and resulting in losses. Pig raising in the month continued to fall sharply by 22% compared to the same period last year.
Although the African swine cholera epidemic has been controlled in many localities, and some localities have announced the end of the epidemic, the slow re-operation caused by the psychology of producers
