KUCHING: The state government has shelved its plans to develop a centralised pig farming area (PFA) at the Kuching-Serian Road following protests from local villagers. 

It has picked an alternative site in Balai Ringin at the Serian-Sri Aman Road, said state Assistant Minister for Agriculture and Food Industries Datuk David Teng Lung Chi. 

The original site covering some 1,000ha is the biggest of the four proposed PFAs planned by the government to relocate both licensed and unlicensed farms.  

The other proposed PFA projects are in Sibu, Miri and Limbang divisions. 

The PFA in Limbang is expected to be built first. 

A consultant estimated the development cost of the project at between RM6.4mil and RM7.4mil.
