Russia's Pork Production Forecast Decreased

13 September 2012, at 12:07pm

RUSSIA - Moscow decreased its 2012 pork production forecast by 2.7 per cent, to 2.045 MMT, because of increased feed prices resulting from lower grain production (caused by unfavorable weather conditions throughout the world).

However, year-on-year pork production is still forecast to increase to 2.045 MMT, or 2.2 per cent more in 2012 than in 2011.

Pork production in 2013 is forecast to grow by another 2.7 per cent, to 2.1 MMT, following the renovation and construction of new swine production farms.

Pork imports in 2012 are forecasts by USDA FAS/Moscow to grow by 5.5 per cent and beef imports to remain stable in 2012.

Increased imports from Belarus are expected to offset decreased imports from Europe and the United States during the first half of 2012.
