Russian Federation - Livestock and Products - Livestock Semi-Annual Report - 2009

Pork production is expected to increase 4 per cent in 2009, due in most part to large investments in swine production in 2007-08, higher reproductive yields and government measures to curb imports. The pig crop is expected to increase by 4.3 per cent in 2009 and will equal 43.6 million pigs. These are the forecasts in the latest GAIN report from the USDA Foreign Agricultural Service.
