Ukrainian-Swiss pig breeding complex to be built in Kazakhstan
The Ukrainian agricultural holding KSG Agro announced plans to build a complex in Kazakhstan in which it will raise purebred pigs. One of the project's investors is the Swiss company KS Genetic.
The new plant will consist of two reproducers, each of which will be able to house about 4 thousand sows. The production capacity will be 200 thousand heads per year. The facility will also include a feed mill. The estimated cost of the project is $ 50 million.
Sergey Kastyanov, chairman of the board of directors of KSG Agro, explains the choice of Kazakhstan as a site for the construction of a new plant by the geographic location of the country. In particular, the proximity of China, Vietnam, and South Korea, to which it is planned to export the products of the pig breeding complex under construction. According to Kasyanov, there are no foci of African swine fever in Kazakhstan either.
KSG Agro Holding was founded in 2001 in the Dnipropetrovsk region of Ukraine. Among the areas of his activity are plant growing, animal husbandry, horticulture, and other types of agricultural activities.
