Authorities decide against a pig farm near Maladzechna


Pig farm for 100 thousand heads that was to be built by the company Veles-Mit will not be constructed. It was reported by Radio Liberty with reference to the first deputy chairman of the executive committee of Molodechno Genadz Bazhko. Pig farm is to be built near the village Moisichy, three kilometers away from Maladzechna.

Construction plans for pig farm caused great controversy in society. Several hundred signatures were collected against the decision. On 1 December, Maladzechna Region Executive Committee held a public hearing on this topic.

Incidentally, Maladzechna  authorities have not abandoned plans to build a second pig farm. The company Velez-Mit wants to construct it near the village Soulava in Maladzechna district.
