A British pig-breeding company has received two orders for genetically improved pigs from the Russian Republic of Tatarstan.
The company, ACMC, announced the order for an initial delivery of over 300 GGP stock, worth €368,000 is to be followed by further shipments later in 2007, amounting to a total of 640 nucleus animals when complete.
All the high-health nucleus stock will be supplied from ACMC’s isolation farm, near Malton, North Yorkshire.
The animals will be used to stock a new nucleus breeding herd being set up by Agrofirma SABA, an integrated farming operation, in the Sabinski region of Tatarstan under a franchise agreement.
This will supply breeding animals to multiplying farms in the area, which will then produce improved stock for commercial production locally.
