Pig industry threatened in The Bahamas

21-12-2006 | |

The escalating price of cereal and a deteriorating pork market have resulted in a vanishing pig industry in The Bahamas.

The Bahamas’ pig industry is facing a significant threat due to escalating prices of cereals, particularly corn, which is a major component of manufactured animal feed for pig production.
The pig industry in The Bahamas is basically non-existent as pork production declines dramatically. Similar to other ‘white meat’, pork consumption remains high due to imports, whereas the fresh pork market seems to have deteriorated.
