The decrease in the number of pigs grew to a drastic proportion during the past few decades. before the change of the regime there
were approximately 10 million pigs counted, but today this number is slightly beyond 3 million. The decline in livestock has a
negative effect on the competitive position of both this sector and that of other branches of industry as well weakening significantly
the economic importance of the sector. The underlying causes of the process leading to the decline are diverse. to reveal the
solution a versatile analysis of the economic situation is essential, which should be started in the first place by the examination of
the factors defining the competitiveness of the pig sector. The aim of this work is to reveal and characterize the national capacities,
the physical and biological, as well as the social, economic (market) and human factors pointing to the most important differences
at the same time. This study analyzes the efficiency of the chosen farms according to the size of plant, standard of production, technology
and capacity of maintenance. summarizing the farmers’ opinions and the data obtained, it can be stated that farmers in the
current situation are satisfied with the buying price as one of the most essential factors of production. however, they emphasized
the role of prices as a factor of uncertainty. As a result of changing the out-of-date technology considerable improvement could be
observed in the natural indexes. Unfortunately, significant changes should be accomplished in the feasibility of support and
financing investment. The strict environmental regulations of animal keeping make the operation of farms – mainly of those that
do not possess arable land – more difficult. reforms would provide relief for the operating farms. The market price regulation of
the alternative fodder and the existent substitute products could appear as a significant cost efficiency factor during production.
Workers with unsuitable education – and often being incompetent –, trade unions operating as false organizations as well as the
lack of cooperation with the food processing industry affect the sector sensitively.
