There Will Be More Mutton On Stavropol Territory Print E-mail
   From 2021, the state program for the development of agriculture in Russia will support the production and processing of sheep meat.
   For livestock breeders in Stavropol, who produced 27,8 thousand tons of lamb in 2020, this support will be a significant help for the development of the industry in the region, the regional Ministry of Agriculture reports. The number of sheep and goats today is 1,5 million heads, and from 2021, the Stavropol Territory plans to provide high-quality mutton not only to domestic needs and the needs of neighboring regions, but also to foreign countries.
   Farms in Andropovsky, Neftekumsky, Alexandrovsky, Budennovsky, Predgorny and Levokumsky districts have already joined the project. In these territories, 3.3 thousand ewes were inseminated in 2020, which by March-April of this year will additionally give the region 2,3 thousand lambs.
   “Our region has a strong potential for the export of mutton. It allows the region to cover the entire market of Stavropol and a number of subjects of the North Caucasus Federal District and the Southern Federal District, and in the future to send to Iran, Iraq and Israel up to 5 thousand tons of lamb per year”, said the Minister of Agriculture of the Stavropol Territory Vladimir Sitnikov. “Sheep breeding is one of the priority areas of development of the livestock industry in the coming years, so the Governor of the region Vladimir Vladimirov pays close attention to subsidizing this type of activity. Last week, I held a personal meeting with representatives of the Damate Group of Companies, where my colleagues and I discussed the types of state support for peasant (farm) farms and family livestock farms engaged in sheep farming.”
