RUSSIA - The Pulkovsky agricultural complex will open a new pig farm this week in the Leningrad Oblast.

The unit will be the largest livestock-rearing complex in the Northwest region and is part of the state program for the development of agricultural industry.

The new farm, which is located in the village of Tarasovo in the Tosnensky district, has cost a total investment of around US$595.5 million. It will consist of a breeding and reproduction center, feeding and rearing systems, a feed production plant and an educational farm.

The first part of the complex will be opened on Thursday, but the entire project will not be completed until 2012.
