Feed consumption in the Philippines contracts

October 22, 2019

The ASF outbreak in the Philippines will likely result in a 10% reduction in hog feed demand. According to a USDA report on the country’s feed and grain supply, this in turn will lead to a drop in the country’s feed wheat imports by 500,000 tons in marketing year 2018/19 to 7.1 mt. In June 2019, the Philippines imposed safeguard and biosecurity measures for plant-based feed products from ASF-declared countries.
