Cattle numbers to be significantly raised in 5-7 years

2012/3/27 17:08:28

Azarov notes that in order to increase cattle numbers, it was necessary to support large commodity production and small private farms


KYIV, March 27, 2012 (UBO) – A significant increase in cattle numbers in Ukraine could be achieved in five to seven years. Now there is every reason for its annual increase by 200,000-300,000, Mykola Azarov, prime minister said, UkrInform reported.

 

“We understand quite well that a significant increase in cattle numbers will not be achieved in a year or two. All understand that. At least five to seven years are needed for that, during which it will be possible to purposefully achieve growth,” Azarov said.

 

Azarov noted that in order to increase cattle numbers, it was necessary to support large commodity production and small private farms. “On the one hand, it is necessary to introduce support for large commodity production and to achieve the growth of 200,000-300,000 heads per year - now it's the most realistic figure,” Azarov said.

 

At the same time, he said that it was necessary to support small private manufacturers who have two to five cows in their farms. “We need to support the production of meat and milk by the public,” Azarov said. He said that cattle numbers in Ukraine declined from 23.7 million to 4.7 million over the period of its independence.
