Abstract

Abstract This report provides an overview of livestock and milk production in Russia and the CIS since the disintegration of the USSR. State production and livestock inventories are shrinking at an accelerating rate, and the shortfall is not being met by increased private sector activity. The outlook for 1993 is for further declines, especially as the feed supply situation is getting worse and the livestock birth rate is falling.
