Xiong becomes chairman pig association

One of AgFeed's founding executives, Zhengru Xiong, has been named Chairman of the Jiangxi Province Hog Farm Association for a one year term.

The Association is a government sponsored entity. It provides policy, guidance and assistance to its over 400 members - mainly local pig farmers in the Jiangxi Province producing up to 25 million pigs yearly.

Xiong, who has been a vice chairman of the Association for the last three years, commented that he is "honoured to lead the association", which represents all the commercial pig farms in the province where the headquarters of AgFeed is situated.

AgFeed's Chairman Songyang Li, PhD, is enthusiastic about the appointment stating that he believes that it represents recognition by the local government of his organisation's "in-depth knowledge of the pig raising industry". His organisation, in turn, will benefit from Xiong's expertise and broad contacts in the region.
