Government scheme to help pig farmers
French farm minister Michel Barnier announced at the
weekend a government scheme to help the country's pig farmers.
Under the scheme, a budget of €30 million has been allocated to help the
country's pig farmers in debt, young farmers and recent investors to meet the
interest charges on their loans.
The scheme is intended to "support pig farmers and maintain a diversified
sector." It will come into operation on January 1, 2008.
