Ukrainian pig prices under pressure – exports should help

Pork exports from the Ukraine to Europe?

2 years ago should grow pig production in the Ukraine by 25%, to increase the self-sufficiency of 75 to 100%. It harbored the hope that greater exports to the neighboring Russia could be possible in addition.

Now it is feared a large wave of bankruptcy. The prices are less than one dollar per kg LG. The production cost is however 1.40 to $1.60 per kg of LG. Not more than 10% of the companies are still able to operate profitably, for the rest of the large red numbers are written.

The pig in the Ukraine is divided into three parts. Almost 35% of the pigs in backyards to the self-sufficiency are held in the country. Next 20% are organized into small units.  The remaining pigs for the supply in the densely populated areas are in the industrially farmed large enterprises. 

Backyard attitudes the pigs waste are often used, so that their costs very low hit record. The small attitudes are critical. With prices falling, their number will keep quickly shut down, small losses. This abruptly rising supply pushing down prices even further.

The Bill no longer arises even in large companies. The Ukrainian pig industry association expects a larger wave of bankruptcy. The State should ensure that pork from the land runs, to cause a discharge. Europe and China are mentioned precisely as target countries.
