Pig farming
AgFeed said it is exploring opportunities in the commercial pig farming business in addition to its focus and market expansion in its core premix animal feed business.

The company further noted the new business could complement its current business as China raises over 500 million pigs annually and prices are at historical highs largely due to rising consumer income.

Management said it intends to enter this new business model through mergers and acquisitions as well as building new pig farms.
