Today, the Ministry of Agriculture and Food held a meeting on the results of the first half of 2021 on the development of livestock industries. The event was attended by Deputy Minister Lenar Garipov, Deputy Head of the Main State Agricultural Department of Breeding in Animal Husbandry Gelius Bayazitov, heads of agricultural divisions of districts and others.
Topical issues of animal husbandry were discussed at the meeting: these are cattle reproduction, information support programs for farms and cow feeding.
"Farm managers today need to make balanced rations for the cattle, if necessary, to involve outsourcing companies to compile rations. In addition, let me remind you that there is not so much time left before the adoption of the labeling law. In the future, the possibility of selling livestock without microchips will be almost impossible. It is necessary, together with the veterinary service, to control the entry of young animals," Lenar Garipov said.
