As many as 2,470 live pigs from Thailand were quarantined and imported through the Lao Bao Border Gate in Quang Tri province on June 30 to meet the domestic demand for slaughter and farming.

According to the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD), this is the largest batch of live pigs imported from Thailand after the MARD’s approval for their import.

Nearly 5,800 gilts and more than 3,800 live pigs for slaughter have been imported through the Lao Bao Border Gate since early this year.

Besides the import of live pigs, enterprises have imported over 90,000 tonnes of pork since early this year to ensure the stable supply of pork on the domestic market.

The relevant ministries and sectors have strived to implement measures to pull down the domestic prices of live hog through re-herding and importing frozen pork and live pigs.
