Russia should produce 2.02 MMT of pork in 2012, 2.4 percent higher than 2011, resulting from improved conditions for swine rearing. FAS/Moscow also increased its 2011 pork production estimate by 2.8 percent for the same reasons.

Rosstat reported agricultural establishments increased pig production 7.5 percent in January – June 2011, compared to the same period in 2010. MinAg also reported in its 2010 National Report that most of the production growth in 2010 came from 78 new, reconstructed, and modernized pig farms. These facilities produced 67,800 MT of pork, valued at RUR4.7 billion ($162 million).

Six regions of the Russian Federation – Belgorod, Lipetsk, Orel, Tambov, Volgograd, and Sverdlovsk regions produced 139,700 MT (75.8 percent) of the 184,400 MT increase in pork production for slaughter, obtained in 2010.

According to MinAg reports, average daily weight gain increased in 44 regions from 350 to 395 grams (by 12.9 percent) in 2010.

The GOR issued Resolution #1247-R on July 20, 2011, approving RUR9.0 billion ($300 million) of State financial support to Russian poultry and pork producers as compensation for increased feed costs in 2011. Initially announced by Prime Minister Putin in March 2011, the Resolution amends the 2011 federal budget allocations to regional authorities for poultry and swine industries.
