Max Armstrong looks at the changing pork market in China

Max Armstrong observes that China may be looking at a range of tariffs on U.S. products but that country has also been raising its production of a key commodity - pork. That rising production may also end up reducing pork imports, and that was noted before recent news of a tariff on U.S. pork. The country has started significant expansion.

Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
