Slovenia - National pig herd falling rapidly

The December census makes grim reading with a fall of pig numbers of 20% on 2007 to 432,000 pigs. Only in 2003, the number of pigs in the country was 620,000. With consumption stable at around 90,000 tonnes, this means that self-sufficiency that has been around 70% for some years will fall and Slovenia will import more pig meat in the future.
