3 timeviewed

Members of the Kazakh Farmers union confirmed their position on the moratorium on the export of live cattle, voicing the opinion that the ban period should be increased from 6 to 60 months at the meeting with Agriculture ministry. 

Members of the union told the Minister about all the current problems of agriculture. Subsidies for herbicides and current situation in dairy and meat farming were topical issues of the meeting.

The attenddes spoke about roughness in the previously adopted program for the development of animal husbandry. According to farmers, the emphasis on importing Angus cows to increase livestock was wrong. The same Belgian blue has indicators much higher: the live weight of bulls and cows is much higher, and when slaughtered, the yield of meat is about 80%, while Angus gives around 65%. In addition, the indicators of milk yield are also very good, unlike Angus.

Representatives of the union confirmed their unequivocal position regarding the 6-month moratorium on the export of live cattle outside the Republic, initiated by the Ministry of Agriculture. They support the Ministry's decision. Moreover, some members of the union suggested extending the ban to 5 years.
