BAKU, Azerbaijan, January 24

By Amina Nazarli - Trend:

The livestock complex owned by “Ajaýyp ussat halal önümleri” in Turkmenistan's Akhal region produced over 5.5 million tons of milk and 147 tons of meat in 2021, Trend reports citing Turkmenportal.

The complex, which opened in 2015, is home to breeding 2,500 cows of the elite Holstein breed as well as 2,800 sheep of the Karakul and Saraja breeds.

Dairy cows make up roughly half of the herd. Up to 20 tons of milk are delivered daily to specialized enterprises in the Akhal and Mary regions.

Another 5 hectare complex was built by the ES in 2018 for the production of high-quality beef, including the so-called "marble".

The first 60 heads of the Aberdeen Angus breed, bred in Scotland, were purchased from Germany.

In addition, some 300 cows and 15 bulls were imported from Russia for breeding and the production of marbled beef. The farm now has over a thousand of these cows.

In general, Turkmenistan is working to develop animal husbandry, increase the number of livestock, production of meat and dairy products, and strengthen the feed base of the industry.

So, at present, the country is developing new product lines in this direction and continues to improve local livestock enterprises.
