Abstract

The ability of China to continue satisfying its food requirements is a question with important ramifications for U.S. agricultural exports. This report documents the Food and Agricultural Policy Research Institute (FAPRI) model of China's meat and egg sectors. The report begins with a brief description of China's trade patterns followed by a discussion of the model structure and the important parameter assumptions. It summarizes the procedure used to project feed grain demands, and concludes with suggestions for future model development.
