Thanks to the support of the Ministry of Agriculture and Food of the Republic of Tatarstan, the livestock of the farms of the KAMAI AGRO cooperative was replenished with high-yield breeds from the Netherlands.
Farmer Elnar Agliev bought 33 heads of heifers of the Holstein-Frisian breed. This breed of cow is considered the highest-yielding in the world. The highest milk yields and the quality of milk allowed it to win a leading position on dairy farms in the republic.
The total number of livestock in the cooperative "KAMAI AGRO" today is 188 heads, including 71 heads of dairy cows. At the end of last year, the milk yield per 1 cow at KAMAI AGRO was 9412 kilograms - at the level of the most advanced farms in the Republic of Tatarstan. Since the beginning of this year, 2374 quintals of milk have been produced.
