During the first three months of 2015, Russia imported less than half as much pork as in the same period last year.
Moving disease diagnostics from the laboratory to the field could provide significant time and cost savings for the pig industry.
Pork sales over the latest 12-week period, up to 26 April, suffered partly as a result of switching to other proteins, namely chicken and lamb, which have been heavily promoted by a number of retailers.
