"This year, the cattle breeders could not only stay at the level of the previous year in terms of the number of live animals sold, but also increase the volumes," the chairman of the Ukrainian Stock Breeders Association, Irina Palamar, commented on the situation. - I think that the significant increase in prices for the products sold has played an important role, helping enterprises not to be unprofitable. For example, we all remember that last year the pigs were sold live at UAH 29 / kg, and today - 50 UAH. That is, for entrepreneurs there was a positive dynamics regarding marginality. Although for the consumer, of course, this fact is negative, because on the shelves of stores meat products has risen in direct proportion. "
