Reports say that 3,000 Yorkshire pigs will be sold to Cambodian farmers. The Mong Reththy Group imported the pigs from the U.K. last year for its new breeding house for $5 million.

Pigs that are 8 months old will be sold for $420-$500 each and are hoped to have more breeding potential than local pigs.

The sale comes as the pig industry flounders in the country with problems of feed supply and market prices that have fallen nearly 4% this year.
