Russian Minister of agriculture Nikolai Fedorov and the President of Bashkortostan Rustem Khamitov visited the Bashkir poultry farm by M. Gafuri on Monday, October 29. They inspected the new fourth section of the farm.

The Minister of agriculture RF was interested when the farm would reach the project parameters and in the volumes of investing. Representatives of the farm told that the volumes of investing made up 6,6 billion rubles – 4,7 billion were assimilated for today. “ROSSELKHOZBANK” is the main investor but the farm uses its own means too.

Nikolai Fedorov was also interested in the quality of fodders, used by the farmers. He was told that the farm had its own formula-feed plant and cattle-breeders could control quality and staff of the fodders themselves.

The President RB Rustem Khamitov mentioned that Republican authority will help the farm in construction of new housing complex for the farm’s workers. Nikolai Fedorov promised state support at the all-Russian level too.

For the reference: Construction of the Bashkir poultry farm started in 2007. The end of the construction works is appointed on the second quarter of 2013. The project consists of three stages. At the first stage in 2009 the farm started production of turkey meat. Every year the farm produces 6345 tons of turkey meat in live weight. The second turn was launched in May 2012 – the site N4 for growth of young turkey – eight poultry yards, meant for 93500 heads. The livestock of the farm numbers more than 176 thousand heads for today. Now the farm begins the third stage of the project.

The project is considered a top priority one in Bashkortostan and thanks to it the farm receives considerable tax preferences. In the next two years the farm has to reach full production capacity and in 2014 it will produce 30 tons of turkey meat in live weight.
