What is the prospect of the breeding industry in 2024? What is the most profitable way to raise pigs, chickens, cattle, and sheep?

What is the prospect of the breeding industry in 2024? This is a matter of great concern. As people's living standards improve, the demand for aquaculture products is also increasing. The following is an analysis of the prospects of the breeding industry in 2024:

First of all, with the growth of population and acceleration of urbanization, the breeding industry is facing increasing market demand. People's demand for high-quality, healthy, and safe food is also increasing. Therefore, the breeding industry will have more opportunities and challenges.

Secondly, the government’s policies for the breeding industry will also be more favorable. The government has been strengthening supervision of food quality and safety, which will bring more opportunities and challenges to the breeding industry. At the same time, the government will also introduce more policies that are conducive to the development of the aquaculture industry and encourage farmers and enterprises to engage in more aquaculture production.

Third, breeding technology will also be continuously improved and innovated. With the continuous advancement of science and technology, aquaculture production will pay more attention to environmental protection, efficiency, health, and safety. New breeding technologies and methods will be able to improve breeding efficiency and quality, and reduce costs and risks.

1. What is the prospect of pig farming in 2024?

To better understand the outlook for the pig industry in 2024, you can consider the following aspects:

1. Market trends

Investigate the latest trends in the swine market, including demand for pork, price trends, and market competition. Be aware of changes in the global and domestic economy and factors that may affect the swine industry.

2. Policy environment

Consider government policies and regulations for the pig industry. Policy changes can have a direct impact on the business, and understanding the relevant policies is important in making plans.

3. Disease control

Consider the epidemic situation in the livestock industry and understand and take appropriate measures to protect against possible disease outbreaks.

4. Global and Domestic Economy

Global and domestic economic conditions have a significant impact on the swine industry. Economic growth and people's purchasing power may affect the demand for pork.

Please note that the pig industry is complex, so when formulating plans, it is recommended to analyze in conjunction with specific regional and market conditions, as well as the prevailing economic, policy, and technological environment. You can also refer to industry reports and opinions from agricultural professional organizations for more relevant information.

Will pig prices rise or fall in 2024?

Industry insiders said that in the absence of major epidemics and other unexpected factors, pork prices will be difficult to rebound in the short term, and it is expected that prices will not rebound until the second half of 2024.

If there are no sudden factors such as major epidemics, and the market remains relatively stable until the second half of 2024, some industry insiders may believe that pig prices are expected to rebound during this period. However, this is only a possibility, and the actual pig price trend will be comprehensively affected by many factors.

Although the pig industry faces some risks and uncertainties, it also has many opportunities for sustainable development. Driven by the government, the pig industry is also increasingly paying attention to green environmental protection and has proposed a series of supportive policies. At the same time, advances in science and technology have also brought new development opportunities to the pig industry, such as intelligent breeding technology and environmental monitoring systems. Therefore, for investors with certain strength and technology, the pig industry is still a huge potential money-making opportunity. It is also necessary to pay attention to the uncertainty of the pig industry. The pig industry needs to face many risks, such as disease outbreaks and market fluctuations. Especially in recent years, the pig industry has experienced a series of challenges due to the outbreak of African swine fever. These risks are particularly severe for small retail investors, who often do not have enough experience and resources to deal with emergencies. Therefore, whether it is advisable to follow the trend becomes a question that needs to be discussed. It is undeniable that following the trend may bring temporary gains, but it also increases risk taking. Without adequate coping capabilities, following the trend will only lead to problems.

Is it profitable to raise sheep? What is the prospect of sheep farming in 2024?


Whether you can make money raising sheep actually depends on many factors, including your breeding methods, market conditions, feed costs, etc. In 2024, sheep farming will still be an industry with potential, but whether it is profitable or not still needs to be analyzed on a case-by-case basis.

First of all, from the perspective of market demand, people's demand for mutton is increasing. This is mainly because mutton has high nutritional value and good taste, and is deeply loved by consumers. At the same time, wool is also an important industrial raw material, and market demand is gradually increasing.

Secondly, the feed cost of raising sheep is relatively low, because sheep mainly eat grass and other plant feeds, which are easy to obtain in rural areas and the price is relatively low. In comparison, feed costs for other meats are much higher.

However, raising sheep also carries some risks. First of all, sheep diseases spread easily, and if management is improper or epidemic prevention measures are not in place, serious economic losses may occur. Secondly, since sheep are social animals, if the breeding scale is too small, the economic benefits will not be high.

Generally speaking, the prospect of sheep farming in 2024 is still promising, but you need to carefully evaluate your own capabilities and market demand, and choose the appropriate breeding method and scale. At the same time, attention should be paid to improving one's own breeding technology and management level, reducing disease and mortality, and improving economic benefits.

Sheep raising should not be too bad in the next 2-3 years. At the very least, sheep farms that raise breeding ewes or self-breeding sheep will be relatively stable. As for fattening sheep, there is a little bit of pessimism.

The reasons for saying this are mainly as follows:

The price of lamb continues to rise; the rise in lamb price is something that everyone can see. In the past few years, the price of the same lamb has increased by a minimum of 300 to 500 yuan per lamb compared with previous years. This rising price is pure profit for sheep farms that raise breeding ewes or self-breeding sheep. However, for pure fattening sheep farms, profits will be greatly compressed as lamb prices rise.

Subsidy for breeding ewes; for breeding ewes, no matter how much or how little, most areas have subsidies. In most areas, a few dozen yuan to a few hundred yuan is equivalent to pure profit. Of course, subsidies are not automatically delivered to your doorstep. Although you may not get it if you apply, you definitely won't get it if you don't apply.

Forage cost: It is recommended that everyone try to purchase corn or roughage directly from farmers. Firstly, it can save part of the cost, and secondly, it can ensure the quality of feed.

The core is: the price of mutton sheep is unlikely to fall sharply

With the increase in imported mutton and the further reduction of import tariffs, it will have a certain impact on the domestic sheep raising industry, but it is not as big as expected. In the future, the price of mutton may fall slightly, but it will definitely not fall drastically. Of course, there are reasons why I say this, mainly three points.

1. Although the breeding conditions in foreign countries are good, they are not stupid. The price of imported mutton is not as low as everyone thinks. In the absence of tariffs, the price is no lower than the slaughterhouse cost price. Of course, mutton from some countries such as India, Myanmar, and Laos is much cheaper.

2. The number of sheep raised in China has dropped significantly, and the number of sheep raised worldwide is also declining year by year.

3. Domestic mutton consumption has increased significantly, and mutton consumption in other countries is also increasing.

Judging from the above three points, sheep prices should not fall sharply in the next 2-3 years. As long as current prices can be maintained, sheep farming can be profitable.

Sheep raising is not a 100% profitable industry. It is not a big problem to make money if the sheep are raised well, but if the sheep are not raised well, it will be difficult to make money no matter how good the market is. However, as the profit margin of fattening sheep decreases, it becomes more difficult to make money by raising sheep. If you want to make money by raising sheep, you must do better than before in all aspects. If you want to make money by raising sheep, buying sheep, technology, feed, management, epidemic prevention, etc. are all indispensable.

After the economic situation improves, the increased demand will inevitably lead to tight supply and demand. After all, many people have withdrawn from the sheep raising industry in recent years, and the number of sheep has been significantly reduced. In addition, the number of pigs has been significantly reduced due to the impact of African Fever. Therefore, it is very likely that supply will exceed demand. Then mutton will definitely be very popular in the next few years, and sheep prices are expected to remain high. In the next few years, farmers and animal husbandry experts believe that the market prospects for raising sheep are promising. What do you think?

Is it suitable to invest in cattle raising in 2024? Make money or not?

The price of beef has been soaring. The editor analyzed that the main reasons include four aspects:

First, the market demand has increased, the income of urban and rural residents has increased, and the living standards have improved. In particular, the common people are gradually realizing the benefits of eating beef, and the market mechanism of high quality and low price is gradually coming into play.

Second, the biological characteristics of cattle determine that cattle reproduce slowly and have a long feeding cycle. Cows are single-birth animals. The gestation period lasts for more than 280 days, and fattening for slaughter generally takes more than 2 years. The cost of breeding is much higher than that of pigs and chickens.

Third, the cost of fodder and labor has increased significantly, which has contributed to the continuous rise in beef prices.

Fourth, everyone believes that farmers’ income from raising cattle is not as high as working outside the home. This has led to a sharp decline in the number of beef cattle raised, especially the number of basic cows, and the national cattle supply is tight. And it will be difficult to alleviate within the foreseeable 10 years. Through the quotations in recent times, many cattle friends have discovered such a problem. The price of calves is high, but the price of feeder cattle is not.

This reduces the profits of cattle raising, and cattle owners are worried, can cattle farmers still make money?


1. The main reasons for high calf prices

The number of breeding cows is getting smaller every year, and naturally, there are fewer calves. That's why prices are getting higher year by year. Raising breeding cows requires greater investment and a longer cycle than raising fattening cows. But the profit is much lower than that of fattening cattle. The increase in calf prices is also improving the efficiency of breeding cows. Thereby reducing the benefit gap between breeding and fattening.

From a long-term perspective, if you want to develop cattle farming in the long term. You must have your base of cows and insist on self-breeding.

2. Isn’t it said that mountain cattle are cheap? Why is it still so expensive?

Downhill cattle refer to cattle grazing in Northeast China and Inner Mongolia, which have no grass in autumn and winter. Cattle are no longer grazed for sale. A few years ago, mountain cattle were indeed cheaper. But now we are well-informed and have convenient transportation. If many people are going to buy cattle, the price will naturally not be cheap.

To put it bluntly, Xiashaniu now is like the Double Eleven of e-commerce. It looked cheap, but when I bought it home, I realized it was even slightly more expensive than before. However, there are also advantages to buying mountain cattle, that is, there are more sources of cattle and more choices.
