Russian Feed Sector Continues to Expand

The Pig Site (May 7, 2013) | The Russian feed sector is continuing to develop rapidly, supported by strong growth in the livestock and poultry sectors and the introduction of new technologies and improved quality. Despite this, major weaknesses in the sector remain including outdated facilities and technologies, insufficient domestic production facilities for acids and vitamins, and a lack of sufficient domestic production of certain feed grains and oilseeds. At the 7th International Conference “Compound Feeds-2013” in February 2013, presenters from the Ministry of Agriculture and the feed industry commented on opportunities and constraints for the feed sector in Russia.
