Last week the Genesus Team which included representation from Canada, China, Philippines, Thailand, UK and Vietnam exhibited in at VIV Asia held in the Capital City of Bangkok. We were pleased to be joined also by our partners, Inspired Nutrient who are our distributors for Genesus imported products in Thailand, and the owner Trevor Shields of Glenmarshal Sires, UK one of our Global AI distribution partners.
This is a massive exhibition with over 1250 International exhibitors attending. Aqua, Swine and Poultry departments were well represented and there were many technical presentations on site and several off-site including “Pig Health 2019”, “Managing Change hosted by Positive Action” with several International experts including our very own Vice President Mr. Mike Van Schepdael.
The Genesus booth was very busy, we meet many clients, friends and some new potential customers from developing markets such as India, Myanmar and Indonesia,
Although we face the challenge of ASF and a lot of talk was about the herd size reduction in China, this is causing serious consolidation within the Chinese swine industry. Chinese companies within the swine industry are struggling, down-sizing and indeed disappearing due to the effect of ASF, though most of the larger swine businesses remain positive for the medium and long term, expecting to see the huge upside of higher pig prices for the next few years.
