There are many reasons for the decline in pork prices, the first is affected by the national hog prices decline. Since 12 months late last year, the market price of pork has been sluggish, the market hog herds have increased, but the demand did not keep up, causing the market oversupply, pork prices fell. Second, the impact of reduced consumption after the holiday. On the eve of the Spring Festival, residents buy a lot of pork reserves for the new year, after the festival, people are still spending all kinds of food reserves, so the demand for pork is relatively small. Third, the impact of weakening market demand. Throughout the country in the implementation of the central eight provisions, public funds consumption is strictly controlled, the food and beverage industry demand for pork has declined.
