US firm to build large pig farm in Russia

Company Ed Capital Management, LLC is planning to build a large pig farm in Altai Krai, Russia.

The investment project is expected to be implemented with the use of public-private partnership, according to the official website of the region after a meeting in Moscow of the Governor Alexander Karlin with the managing partner of Ed Capital Management, LLC Elliott Daniloff.

It is assumed that the complex will include an artificial breeding unit, breeding and hybrid center, four commercial farms for 2.5 thousand of sows, a slaughterhouse with the capacity of 100 head per hour, a feed mill with capacity of up to 30 tonnes per hour and the grain storage with the capacity of 50,000 tonnes of grain.

The preliminary cost of the project has not been disclosed, but it is already known that the state will provide business with tax credits for its development, and will participate in it through the use of administrative resources.

Altai Krai is a region with relatively underdeveloped pig farming. As a result, with not very large amounts of pork production, while the new complex promises to be one of the largest here.
