The President of Bashkortostan Rustem Khamitov has made a trip to Chekmagushevsky region. In the course of the trip he has visited the central clinical hospital and the local milk farm.
A new milk complex was launched at the farm 15 days ago. The President of Bashkortostan became acquainted with the Russian-Israeli equipment, which computerized the whole process of milk production, monitored the condition of cows, the level of feeding and insemination and kept the milk records – two chips were fastened to each cow. Such computer systems are installed at three Bashkir farms now. The equipment is imported from Izhevsk.
Rustem Khamitov has discussed further business plans with the leadership of the farm. According to the farm's director in 2011 they received rather substantial backing from the Government RB: the subsidies for equipment and fuel purchase. The fuel was acquired at lower prices.
