The Belarusian government is unhappy with the efforts of several regions to restore pork production, Belarusian Prime Minister Mikhail Myasnikovich said at a session of the Presidium of the Council of Ministers on Nov. 25, the Belarusian Telegraph Agency has learned.
In 2014 Belarus will commission a total of eight new pig breeding complexes at Borisov Meat Processing Plant, Bolshevik-Agro (Soligorsk District), Zhabinka Feed Mill, Slutsk Meat Processing Enterprise, Pribuzhie (Brest District), Agrokombinat Zhdanovichi, Zabolotsky (Luban District), Danprod (Volozhin District). The construction of five pig breeding complexes in Korelichi District, Narovlya District, Lelchitsy District, Postavy District and Smolevichi District will be finished in 2015.
By Jan. 1, 2016, the pig population in Belarus is expected to exceed 3.3 million head; the gross production of pigs (live weight) is to amount to 485,000 tonnes. This will be done by using vacant places at existing pig breeding farms and commissioning new farms. The daily gains are to be increased by at least 1.37 lb. by means of using of efficient granulated combined feed.
