According to the new list of types of organizations for pedigree livestock breeding, AGROECO Group has renewed its status of Yorkshire pig breeding farm for another 5 years.

In 2020, we have sold more than 27.5 thousand doses for all three breeds. There is consistently high demand for our products. We have customers both in neighboring and far away regions: Kamchatka, Sakhalin, Buryatia, and so on.”
