The

Subsidiary’s success
The Guangxi

of the Company’s revenues and approximately 26% of the total volume of products
sold during the period.
The Airubao Series of products that the company
introduced earlier this year was very successful, contributing approximately
$5.3 million in sales.

Growth of industry
Junhong Xiong, CEO
of AgFeed commented, “In a favourable market environment in which pork prices
have continued to increase in China, we see continued market expansion and
growth in our premium animal feed industry. “Rising consumer incomes across
China lead to greater demand for better and more meat products which encourage
hog farmers to substantially increase stock in animal production.

“Market
demand for our premium animal feed products benefits from such industry demand
and our business remains strong. We are confident that AgFeed is on track to
continue achieving revenue and profit growth throughout 2007,” Junhong Xiong
said.
