BEIJING, April 17 (Reuters) - China’s pork output rose 2.1 percent to 15.4 million tonnes in the first quarter compared with the prior year, the National Bureau of Statistics said on Tuesday.

The number of hogs slaughtered rose 1.9 percent to 199.8 million head, the data showed, while the total herd declined by 1.2 percent to 415.2 million head.
