Bloomberg is reporting farms in Southern China are reacting to an outbreak of African swine flu with attempts to breed massive pigs.

China is a huge market for pork products.

However, thanks to the flu outbreak, wholesale pork prices in China have surged more than 70% this year, while pig inventories plunged 39% in August from a year earlier.

The average pig is usually about 125 kilograms. Recently, farmers have been pushing the size of hog to slaughter to almost 200 kilograms.

These super-sized pigs will tip the scales at nearly 500 kilograms or over 1,100 lbs.

Who knows how these massive genetically modified pigs will turn out?
