Beef takes the third place among the production of the main types of meat in Ukraine. Poultry meat is produced most of all in our country. The production of domestic poultry farms is in demand both on the domestic and international markets. Ukrainian pork almost completely provides the domestic market. Its export potential is limited due to the spread of ASF. Beef is the most expensive and laborious kind of meat. In 2017 it occupied only 5.2% of the Ukrainian meat output, pro-consulting.ua reported.
Ukraine is on the first place in the ranking of 52 countries of the world with the most affordable poultry meat and one of the leaders at the lowest price for pork and beef. This is evidenced by the data of the British edition of The National Provisioner, which specializes in agrarian subjects, АgroРolit.com reported.
