The planned production volume of feed in 2013 is 1.12 million tonnes, which will fully meet the needs of all the pigs (2.7 million head) and poultry (500,000 heads) belonging to the agricultural holdings, leaving up to 93,000 tonnes available to place on the open market, said Dmitry Orlenko, the head of the Feed Production Department of the company.
