    Over half of China’s pigs died last year from AFS. It would have a serious economic impact in Canada if that happened. It would cost us billions of dollars. Really dumb idea
    There are 4 billion dollars in live hog sales per year in Canada. It is a major export. Cash croppers would be affected, truckers, packers, consumers, feed mills and many others.

    I think 95% of those were slaughtered to stop the spread of the disease.

    You bet I'm kidding. See Ontario Farmer's post #5. He's right on the money.
