author: Eugeniy Rakhimkulov

Bashkortostan is going to become a dairy capital of Russia. The republican management set such goals for itself. Rustem Khamitov, the President of Bashkortostan informed about it at the meeting with editors-in-chief of federal mass-media.

— Already now our region is among the first on milk production, — he said. – But this breakaway is very small and we need to increase it.

In order to strengthen substantially the rank of Bashkortostan as the dairy capital of Russia, the Russian dairy festival will be held in the republic in September. It will include both the elements of show for people entertainment and a scientific part. Children will be treated with milk free of charge during the festival.
