Meat Production Up

Russia increased its meat and related goods production by 7 percent in the first seven months of the year compared with the same period in 2010, the State Statistics Service said Tuesday.

In July, meat and byproduct output grew 4.5 percent to 96,900 tons compared with a year earlier. This figure is 1.2 percent lower than in June 2011.

About 14,100 tons of beef was produced in July, 15 percent less than a year earlier and 11.7 percent less than in June 2011. Pork production in July rose 12.1 percent from 2010 to 66,100 tons, and was 1.5 percent more than in the preceding month. Poultry and related product output increased to 233,000 tons, up 8.9 percent compared with July last year and 1.7 percent less than in June this year.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
