The Krasnodar Territory is on a mission to recover its pig population within three years following a significant loss of over 57,000 pigs due to African swine fever, with the total loss escalating to 80,000 amid a state of emergency. This setback resulted in a 12.5 percent reduction in pig numbers compared to 2022.
