Russian Pork and Poultry Production Rises as Beef Declines

Nov. 20 (Bloomberg) -- Russia produced more pork and poultry in the first 10 months of the year and less beef, government figures showed.

Production gained 14 percent from a year earlier in the period for pork and fell 4.4 percent for beef, the Federal State Statistics Service said in an e-mailed statement today. Output of poultry and byproducts increased 15 percent, it said, without giving amounts.

Beef production in October was little changed from a year earlier at 17,900 metric tons, said Rosstat, as the service is known. Output climbed 17 percent to 86,700 tons for pork and rose 6.1 percent to 284,000 tons for poultry.

Cattle and poultry output by so-called live weight, which includes skin, bones and byproducts, rose 7.9 percent to 8.8 million tons in the 10-month period, according to Rosstat.

Russia’s cattle herd amounted to 20.7 million head by the end of October, 0.3 percent more than a year earlier. The number of cows increased 0.8 percent to 9 million. Populations gained 6.1 percent to 19.7 million for hogs and expanded 6.8 percent to 25.6 million for sheep and goats, Rosstat said.
