Russia's pig production reaches 1.3 million tonnes in first quarter of 2021



Russia's pig production had reached 1.3 million tonnes in the first three months of 2021, a 0.5% increase over the same period last year, according to the country's Ministry of Agriculture.


The ministry forecast an increase in the production of pork products by more than 4% this year.


Russia has exceeded the target indicator for pork self-sufficiency, which allows it to send surplus abroad and annually increase export volumes.
