Tough pork export market makes Rio Grande do Sul farmers migrate to domestic market

With the high cost of production and the restriction on exports on pork from Rio Grande do Sul, farmers are coming up against serious barriers. Having in recent years focused on exports, they are now targeting the domestic market.

In the region of Lajeado, pessimism reigns, as one of the major regional companies, Doux, has been behind in payments to its integrated suppliers since July 2011.

However, on April 13, the cooperative Languiru opened a pig slaughterhouse, creating around 300 jobs. The initial plan is to slaughter 1,500 pigs a day. Today, production takes in 300 farms in the municipalities of Caí and Taquari Valleys.
