Abstract Asia contains a heavy concentration of the world's pigs and poultry. It accounts for the major proportion of the world's pig population and that of ducks and geese. It is soon likely to account for the major part of the world's chicken population. Based on FAO statistics, Asia in 1996 possessed 58 percent of the world's pigs, 49 percent of its chicken population and 86 to 88 percent of its ducks and geese. With growing human populations and increased incomes in Asia, populations of these small animals are on the rise. However, conditions and circumstances vary considerably between Asian countries. The situation considered here is in Thailand, a small country by Asian standards but a globally significant exporter of poultry.
