Hungary to make concerted effort for hog farmer support 

EU

Hungary and thirteen other European Union members states will press the European Commission for immediate action to address the extraordinary challenges hog farmers are facing at a meeting of the Agriculture and Fisheries Council scheduled for November 15, Agriculture Minister István Nagy said, according to a report by state news wire MTI.

Hungary will urge the EC to take steps together with Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czechia, Estonia, France, Greece, Croatia, Poland, Latvia, Lithuania, Austria, and Slovakia, Nagy said.

Nagy noted that he - along with a number of his peers - had urged the EC to take measures to avoid a worsening of the crisis facing hog farmers at a meeting of the Agriculture and Fisheries Council in October, but the EC had not responded to the initiative.

Hog farmers are looking at significant losses because of low farm gate prices, higher feed and energy prices, and the impact of the pandemic and African swine fever.
