Since April, NegOcc has sent over 17,000 live pigs throughout the Philippines
According to statistics from the Provincial Veterinary Office (PVO), the province of Negros Occidental transported a total of 17,700 heads of live pigs to different parts of the nation from April to mid-June this year.
Based on the pattern in recent months, provincial veterinary Dr. Renante Decena warned in a statement on Wednesday that the amount may potentially rise in the coming days.
In May, 6,829 heads were delivered, with 4,423 heads from commercial raisers and 2,406 heads from home farms, compared to 8,285 heads in April, with 3,775 heads from commercial farms and 4,510 heads from home farms.
These were also distributed across Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao.
“The significant drop in May was due to numerous weather disruptions impacting cargo vessel movement,” Decena said.
He said that business confidence among commercial and backyard raisers in Negros Occidental is improving, citing a PHP5 per kilo rise in live hog pricing from April to May.
In April, the average price was PHP137.50 per kilogram live weight, whereas in May, it was PHP142.50 per kilogram.
During the first half of June, a total of 2,586 heads were transported to Luzon and Visayas markets.
Due to an increase in local hog production, Decena reported a lower price of PHP132.50 per kilogram live weight in the first half of this month.
“This demonstrates that, despite the province’s continual outbound export of pigs, there has been no substantial rise in pork prices on the market impacting local consumers,” he said.
The province administration is optimistic, according to the PVO head, that it will be able to meet rising hog supply needs in various areas of the nation in the coming months while maintaining a sustainable local supply.
