AgFeed Industries, Inc. stocks hog farm in China
AgFeed Industries, Inc., an international agribusiness company with operations in the U.S. and China and one of the largest independent hog producers and manufacturers of animal nutrients in China, announced that it has begun the stocking of its western-style hog farm complex in the city of Da Hua, Guangxi Province, China.
The delivery of live animals to AgFeed’s first western-style hog production pod in Da Hua represents a milestone for the introduction of advanced western style techniques, technologies and methods for the production of hogs in China. The initial Da Hua production pod will now transition from construction mode to production mode.

Having worked in close cooperation with local government in the development and construction of this facility we are now in a position to begin breeding operations. We expect the first animals from this production pod to reach the market in the late winter/early spring of 2012”.
