Introduction - Current State In Of Pig Breeding And Pork Meat Production In Serbia

Although Serbia possesses expressed tradition and favourable natural conditions for development of live stock breeding and meat production, this branch of agriculture for years is in a state of crisis. Decrease trend of total number of livestock was particularly unfavourable within the sector of pigs breeding, what caused relatively small oscillations in pork meat production (Table 1). Mentioned situation is primarily a consequence of disturbed price parities, reduction of export market, non-customs limitations on export of fresh meat and meat products, life standard decreasing, disturbed system of financing and support, broken supply chains, etc. (Jelocnik et al., 2012).
