The corresponding increase in pigs’ number in commercial farms was noted by analysts of the Association of Pig Producers of Ukraine with reference to the data of the SSSU.

As of January 1, 2019, it was recorded 3.37 million pigs in the industrial sector against 3.3 million heads a year earlier.

Unfortunately, growth of industrial herd surrenders to pace of pigs’ drawdown in backyard farms, and therefore it does not compensate it. Particularly, at the beginning of the year the number of swine kept on backyard farms set the new abysmal record — 2,6 million heads. This is 194 thousand pigs compared to their stock at beginning of the 2018. Consequently, total pig herd in Ukraine dropped below 6 million. On the contrary, the weight of industrial pig breeding continues to grow — 56,4% against 54% a year earlier.
