Pigs & Pork in China

My friend Lisa notified me about this recent PBS Newshour feature (here) on the challenges faced in satisfying China's growing demand for meat. In this eleven-minute documentary, Mary Kay Magistad looks at China's efforts to feed a growing urban population that associates meat eating with prosperity but simultaneously demands inexpensive pork. The resulting pressures on the environment, combined with public concern for the safety of their food, has put meat producers and the government in a tight spot. Highly recommended if you are interested in pigs and pork and development in China.
