Ukraine: Livestock and Products Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   UP2021-0033

While the total number of Ukrainian livestock remained on its downward trend in 2021, the swine herd exhibited some signs of recovery after low prices and low production in 2020. Both trends are expected to continue in 2022. African swine fever remains a threat, although the number of registered outbreaks decreased significantly. The consumption of pork is recovering, while the consumption of beef continues to decrease as Ukraine’s export markets offer better prices for both live cattle for slaughter and beef. However, both exports are forecast to decline in 2021-22 due to lower livestock inventory. Pork imports are expected to grow, inspired by increased demand due to growing incomes and the slow reaction of domestic producers.
