The market price of corn enjoys a little uptrend in May 2012 while Chinese government implements some policies including raising value added tax for corn deep-processing industry by 4% and reducing subsidy for bio-fuel ethanol made from grain from USD194.6/t to USD79.4/t in order to prevent the price surging too much. Generally, over 60% of corn is used for feed, whose price accounts about 70% of the total cost of pig raising in China.
In middle April 2012, the price rate of live pig against corn has fallen below 6:1, meaning that pig raisers already suffered loss.
Thus, China's government implements a new regulatory plan for live pigs to relieve the downtrend of live pig price besides trying to adjust the price of corn.
