‘Pig’s Story’ May Be Coming to Happy End

‘Pig’s Story’ May Be Coming to Happy End

Krasnodar, 1 February – Yug Times. In the USSR, African swine fever was for the first time registered in the Odessa region back in 1977. Thirty years later, this veterinary disease became a regionalscale disaster in Kuban. When will this contagion be finally defeated? In 2016, Head of the Krasnodar Regional Statistical Committee Tatiana Kurniakova announced the losses of the region’s agriculture over the preceding decade due to the diseases: from 2006 until 2016, the pig livestock had declined by 70.8% - from 1.6 million to 456,000 pigs.

At the same time, now there is a ground for certain optimism: last December it became known that scientists of the World Organisation for Animal Health had invented a vaccine for African swine fever. Similar news came from the all-Russia Scientific and Research Institute of Veterinary Virology and Microbiology. It looks like it won’t take a long while to start the industrial production of the vaccine - which would come in very handy, for pork meat is much needed in the Krasnodar region (which regularly suffers from swine fever) as well as in all other Russian regions.

According to the regional law on the development of animal husbandry, the pig livestock in the Krasnodar region is to reach 3 million heads by 2023, which is six times more than now. The current development trends give all reasons to assume that the goal will be achieved.

Fedor Dereka, Minister of Agriculture of the Krasnodar region:

“The year 2018 may be called the year of revival of pigbreeding in the Kuban region: at the beginning of the last year we had 410,000 animals; now the figure has grown up to 515,000 - it’s a 126% growth.”
