The Influences of Vertical Integration and Scale of Production on Profitability of Pig Production

The material used in the study concerns 60 farms from the Wielkopolska region. They were divided depending on a degree of the farm integration with the slaughterhouses and on a scale of pigs production. The analyses include calculations of pigs prices, costs of pigs production and profits obtained by the farmers. Besides, the objects of the research are the main pigs production costs (feed and labour) as well as investments realised in the investigated farms.
