Dewey, I failed to notice in the weekly pork export report that China was also a very large buyer of pork for deliver next year. Forward sales for 2019 were 13,000 MT and China took 72% of this business (9,400). This confirms to me that ASF is far worse than what has been reported. Also, when you discount the product enough, as we have over the last few weeks, they will come in and buy it regardless.
This was on my e-mail when I got back to office.
