   During the meeting, Dzhambulat Khatuov also raised the topic of sheep breeding, which is particularly relevant for the region. “We know that the products of Dagestan are in demand throughout the country. The sales market is quite large, including the Crimea, the Krasnodar Territory and the largest resort areas like Sochi,” said the First Deputy Minister of Agriculture of the Russian Federation.
At the same time, he expressed the opinion that the republic has reserves in terms of promoting sheep products in other regions of the country, as well as in terms of improving the quality of wool. In the near future, it is planned to consider the achievements of sheep farmers in Dagestan.
There Will Be More Mutton On Stavropol Territory
   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.”
Manych is 70
   17 February marked the 70th anniversary of the founding of one of the leading farms of the Stavropol Territory for sheep breeding – the collective farm-breeding plant "Manych" of the Apanasenkovsky district. This is a large agricultural enterprise for breeding sheep of the Manych Merino breed, bred here in 1993. The new domestic breed was presented at the exhibition "Golden Autumn-2017" and received a well-deserved gold medal. Long-term and purposeful breeding has helped to create a new population in the flocks of sheep of the Manych Merino breed. The indicators of these animals significantly exceed the minimum requirements for the wool type. As a result of the joint work of scientists of the All-Russian Research Institute of Sheep and Goat Breeding and specialists of the collective farm, a new East-Manych type of sheep was developed on the farm, approved in 2013.
   In 2014, the collective farm was granted the status of a Breeding and genetic center for breeding sheep of the Manych Merino breed. Currently, the number of employees at the company is 291 people. The company takes care of them in a special way: every year employees are provided with free or preferential vouchers for spa treatment and recreation in sanatoriums on the Black Sea coast. In addition, the collective farm operates a mill, a bakery shop, where 800 loaves of bread are baked a day for the consumption of the villagers.
The stable economic well-being of the farm allows us to provide charitable and sponsorship assistance to the residents of the village of Divnoye. The company annually allocates more than 150,000 rubles for the needs and problems of veterans of the Great Patriotic War. The collective farm also provides significant financial assistance to schools, taking care of replenishing the material and technical base of educational institutions, as well as supplying food to the school canteen. In addition, distinguished students are rewarded with cash prizes. At the expense of the economy, 5 graduates of local schools are trained at the Stavropol State Agrarian University.
