Amber Waves:The Economics of Food, Farming, Natural Resources, and Rural America, 2020, vol. February 2020, issue 01

Abstract: Although the rapid spread of African Swine Fever across China decimated the world’s largest swine herd in 2019, it has created significant export opportunities for the U.S. pork industry. In the United States, recent industry expansion and low prices helped the sector export more pork to China, despite high retaliatory tariffs on U.S. pork
