Sibagro to start building pig farm in Mongolia in spring

TOMSK. Jan 18 (Interfax) - Sibagro Group plans to start building a pig farming complex in Mongolia this spring, the Russian company said.

"We have prepared the design documentation. Its adaptation to Mongolian legislation is being finalized. We plan to carry out the construction in two stages. The first phase of the pig complex will be intended for simultaneously housing 10,000 head and the second will be for 40,000," the executive director of the Central Pig Farming Complex, Viktor Pavlov was quoted as saying in the press release.

The company recalled that Sibagro's East Siberian Pig Breeding Complex in Buryatia will supply the young pigs to the new complex and their subsequent grow-finishing will be handled by Mongolia specialists.

It was reported earlier that Sibagro plans to build a pig farming complex in Mongolia with capacity to produce 18,000 tonnes of pork per year. The new farm could become a springboard for Sibagro's entry into the markets of China and Southeast Asia.

Sibagro, a vertically integrated agribusiness group founded in Tomsk in 2000, has 14 livestock farms and meat processing plants in Russia's Ural, Siberia, Central and Far East federal districts.
