During nationwide searches last week, Thailand’s Livestock Development Department found that about 13.4 million kilogrammes of frozen pork were being stored in 539 cold storage facilities amid record-high pork prices, according to Government Deputy Spokesperson Rachada Dhnadirek this morning (Monday).

 

She said that there are also 10.84 million live pigs, including about 49,000 boars and 979,000 sows being raised by about 107,000 pig farmers across the country in the month of January.

 

Compared to statistics for the same period last year, the number of overall live pigs has dropped by 11.81%. There has been a 41.1% drop in the number of boar breeders and 11.16% reduction in the number of sow breeders. The number of fattening pigs has reduced by 13.9%.

Are you saying that 500 tons is more than 14,770 tons?

Now if that's no hoarding I don't know what is.

Why would they publish these findings? They confirm Taksins' claims. How can this be good for the current crowd? I would have put money on such searches not even being carried out, let alone such damning results being published.

13.4 Million Kgs of Pork in cold storage does seem to be a rather large amount.

Of course there always has to be a " buffer stock " of anything such as this, but this is enough Pork to feed the entire Population for nearly 10 days.

If the number of Pigs due for culling is also considered, they there does not appear to be any natural shortage of Pork IMO, as the reduction is only 14 %, and with 11 Million live Pigs, that will have a culling weight of about 80 Kg maybe, of which 40 Kg will be meat

So what.

 

Is that more, or less, or just the right amount?

"rather a large amount". 

 

Can you expand on this thought? Why do you think it's "large"?

13.4 million kilos.

 

Considering Thailand consumes over 700 million kilograms of pork a year it won't help much.

 

....But as usual the few who run the pork monopoly oppose any imports of pork.

 

Looks like alligator,rat, and Sinewy chicken for the time being.

Busy boards, it seems .......

Whatever, it is a lot of "oink, oink, oink" and no surprised here, Thais are used to bend and break any law, rules or suggestion for the sake of personal benefit and greed!
