Philippine feed production is down about 15-20% from a year ago, no thanks to Covid-19 and ASF, a local feed industry stakeholder told Asian Agribiz. “The various viruses that are wreaking havoc in the world haven’t spared our country. These have reduced swine population, threatened poultry farms, and disabled the vibrant domestic consumption of people all over. This caused a drop in feedmilling demand countrywide,” he said, adding that the situation could worsen if the lockdowns are prolonged.
