Asian Agribusiness Renaissance: Feed & Livestock Shake off the Financial Crisis

Eric Brooks recently wrote for eFeedLink an industry newsletter (sorry subscription only),  “With the recession over and 2008's financial crisis a fading memory, feed and meat's tight supply/demand fundamentals are once more reasserting themselves. Speaking at its Agribusiness Outlook seminar in Singapore, John Baker, Rabobank's Food & Agribusiness advisory head for Asia noted that, "Long-term supply and demand fundamentals are beginning to exert a greater influence on agricultural commodity prices." With financial volatility declining, "fundamentals are playing an increasing role in the pricing of agricultural markets."

What we see at AgFeed is that farming, of all kinds, will continue and accelerate its trend from small-scale farms to large scale farms in order to achieve the production efficiencies necessary to supply the growing population.  We are at the forefront of this trend for hog production.
