    Insight: Hog industry worldwide getting slaughtered in trade war

    BEIJING/CHICAGO/CARAMBEI, Brazil (Reuters) - Ken Maschhoff, chairman of the largest U.S. family-owned pork producer, has watched profits fall as trade tensions rise between the United States and China. Investing in domestic operations now would be “ludicrous" as China and others retaliate against U.S. agricultural goods, Maschhoff said from the firm’s Carlyle, Illinois headquarters. Across the globe, Chinese pig farmer Xie Yingqiang sent most of his 1,000-pig herd to slaughter in May to limit losses after Chinese tariffs on U.S. soybeans hiked feed prices and left him unable to cover his costs.

    [$$] Pork Producers Are Hog Wild About the U.S.-China Trade Truce

    The trade truce between Beijing and Washington has arrived at a pivotal moment for America’s pig farmers—as well as China’s WH Group Ltd. On both sides of the Pacific, pork companies and hog farmers have hoped for improvement in trade relations between China, the world’s biggest market for pork, and the U.S., one of the biggest pork-producing nations. WH, which owns pigs and production facilities in the U.S. through its Smithfield Foods subsidiary, last year was responsible for about 75% of the U.S. pork supplied to China.

    USDA terminates Chinese-owned Smithfield farm aid contract

    The U.S. Department of Agriculture terminated a $240,000 purchase contract with Chinese-owned Smithfield Foods that had been awarded under the Trump administration's agricultural trade bailout program, a move taken at the company's request, a department spokesman told Reuters on Friday. The move comes weeks after Republican Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa, one of the country's biggest farm states and the biggest hog-producing state, slammed Smithfield for receiving what he said was aid from the USDA that was meant to help American farmers hurt by China's trade tariffs.

    A $240,000 contract awarded to Chinese-owned Smithfield Foods under the U.S. government's $12 billion trade mitigation program for farmers was terminated by the U.S. Department of Agriculture at the company's request, the USDA said on Friday.

The amount of the contract was $240,000, a USDA spokesman said, adding that the company's request to terminate the contract was received on Nov. 13.

    Toxin in U.S. corn harvest poses latest headache for farmers

    North American farmers are finding increased levels of a plant toxin known as vomitoxin in this year's corn harvest, adding insult to injury for growers already suffering as the U.S.-China trade war hurts soybean exports and crop prices. Vomitoxin sickens livestock and can also make humans and pets fall ill, and grain buyers can reject cargoes or fine farmers for shipments that contain it. More cases than normal are likely in the corn crop because wet weather this autumn caused the fungus to develop while delaying harvests, Iowa State University grain quality expert Charles Hurburgh said on Monday.

    China's WH Group Q3 profit dives 31 pct as trade disputes weigh

    China's WH Group Ltd said on Tuesday its third-quarter net profit plunged 31 percent to $199 million, as lower prices amid higher supplies and trade disputes dented the world's top pork producer's income in the United States. WH Group, which owns U.S.-based Smithfield Foods Inc, said average pork prices in the United States dropped 11.9 percent in the first nine months of the year, due to higher supplies. In April, China slapped a 25-percent import duty on most U.S. pork products in response to U.S. tariffs on Chinese steel and aluminium products.

    U.S. pork exports to China 'not viable' due to trade war -Smithfield CEO

    U.S. pork sales to China are "not viable" after Beijing earlier this year imposed tariffs on imports of American pork, Smithfield Foods' chief executive said on Friday, as the trade war between the world's two largest economies threatened a nearly $500 million business for U.S. hog farmers. The decline in meat exports to China, the world's top consumer of pork, adds to pain felt by farmers caught in the crossfire of the trade dispute.

    Hog deaths, manure flooding from Florence seen surpassing 2016 hurricane

    North Carolina estimated on Tuesday that 3.4 million poultry birds and 5,500 hogs died in Hurricane Florence, exceeding the number killed in the state's last major hurricane two years ago. The North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services projected the animal death toll after emergency workers and veterinarians spent days in the field assessing losses at farms following the storm. "I'm just assuming, based on the depth of the water that we had in North Carolina and the amount of rainfall, that we probably will exceed what we had in Matthew," Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler said in an interview, referring to hog losses.

    U.S. farmers scramble to harvest crops as hurricane looms

    As powerful Hurricane Florence crept closer to the southeastern United States on Tuesday, farmers in North Carolina rushed to harvest corn and tobacco and stock up on pig rations, while the danger of deadly flooding threatened a state where millions of farm animals are housed. The forecasts for devastating rain and winds also had WH Group's Smithfield Foods, the largest U.S. pork processor, planning to shut two of its North Carolina plants - including the world's biggest hog slaughterhouse. Meanwhile, pig farmers across the state were lowering levels of liquid manure in outdoor storage pits in an effort to avoid a repeat of Hurricane Floyd.
