The country's poultry output rose 22 percent to 285,000 tons in July compared with that of a year earlier, the State Statistics Service said.

Meat from cattle climbed 11 percent to 107,000 tons in July, and pork production increased 16 percent to 76,300 tons, the service said in an e-mail Monday. The figures include byproducts.
