Agroholding Rusagro expects to resolve the issue of feed supplies for animal husbandry from Primorye to the Chinese province of Heilongjiang within six months, CEO of the company Maxim Basov told TASS.
“Now there is a crisis in China in the pig industry, first of all we are interested in the Heilongjiang province, and if China allows us to import coastal feed into the territory of Mudanjiang, then, of course, to build pig farms there and supply them feed from Mikhailovka looks very profitable. I think that we will be able to resolve this issue within six months, and then we will be able to dramatically increase the production of compound feed in the Primorsky Territory and export it, “the message says.
He added that the prime cost of compound feed production in Primorye is much lower than in China. In general, Basov called the construction of livestock complexes in China an interesting and promising idea. He clarified that the holding is considering other sales markets, for example, Vietnam.
