RUSSIA - A modern pig breeding complex, built with the financial support of agricultural bank, Rosselkhozbank, has been opened in the Bolshesoldatsky region of Kursk.

The project at the company, OAO Nadezhda, involved the construction of a unit with a production capacity of 60,000 head of fattening pigs a year.

The new breeding enterprise is based on modern industrial pork production technology using the latest equipment from the German company, Big Dutchman, which provides automation for most of the production processes.

The agricultural bank provided 500 million rubles (RUB) in enterprise credit for the project.

This is the sixth livestock facility built by Nadezhda together with the Rosselkhozbank. The company has already successfully put into operation four complexes and pig meat packing plants in the Kursk region.

The total amount of credit investments provided by the agricultural bank for these projects was more than RUB1.7 billion.
