Last year was final in the three-year program for development of poultry production in Russia. During its action, poultry production as slaughter weight grew by 800 thousand tons compared to the planned 375 thousand tons, i.e. the commitments undertaken were surpassed by a factor of 2.1. Within the last five years the growth was above 1.5 mln tons.
