Lukashenko named the main component of profitable production in livestock industry

A balanced and adequate ration is a key component of profitable livestock production – as stated today by the President of Belarus, Aleksandr Lukashenko, at the plenary session of the nationwide seminar dedicated to the development of animal husbandry in the Republic of Belarus, held in Soligorsk


“Scientists together with the Agriculture and Food Ministry have developed more than 50 regulations for all types of livestock products,” noted the Head of State. “However, for some reason there are no regulations, no feed, no balanced diets in practice. As a result, we are losing benefits in the meat and dairy sector.”

In this regard, Aleksandr Lukashenko demanded that each region adhere to the developed crop structure, adherence to deadlines and fodder procurement technologies, “High nutritional value of fodder can only be obtained by working systematically, by working all together.”

The President underlined that the entire vertical must work hard: from agronomists to responsible officials assigned to the regional executive committee.

“Every farm must have a one-and-a-half-year supply of feed. Moreover, all complexes and farms should be provided with nutrition with a sufficient amount of nutritional supplements. There is everything for this. We have built the most modern Belarusian National Biotechnology Corporation – a complex for the production of amino acids and feedstuffs of almost cosmic level. Only four states in the world have such a facility. So use its products. It is completely in your hands. Regulate everything: from personnel to prices. Livestock ration should be balanced. Concentrates cannot be distributed manually. Otherwise, there we’ll have losses in livestock, productivity at a minimum, and overconsumption of expensive premixes.”

Summing up what was said, Aleksandr Lukashenko demanded that order be restored, “If there’re not enough employees – involve students from agricultural universities, invite students from specialised classes. This is good practice, and at the same time a clear example of what and where needs to be improved in one’s own country, in one’s own home!”
