Global changes in the pork industry

The Global Mega Producer list illustrates the dynamics of the world's pork industry.  The global swine business demographics are transforming with 90% of the pigs raised outside of the United States.

Jim Long, president and CEO, Genesus Inc., offers insight into the global changes in the pork industry and the role all hog farmers play in producing pork for the world. "We believe size is not a limitation for people to be in the swine business. The technology is available to everyone. There is no barrier of entry. They have to realize they can compete," stresses Long.
