While African swine fever has cut demand for animal feed elsewhere, the effects of the virus in the Philippines remains minimal

Late 2019 reports suggest that the impact of the virus has not been as widespread in the island nation as elsewhere, leading the USDA to revise its 2019-20 feed wheat consumption estimates for the region.
