UFA, 17 October 2019. /Bashinform News Agency, Rozaliya Valeeva/ translated by Tatiana Aksyutina/.
In the Ilishevsky district of Bashkiria, at Urozhay breeding plant LLC, construction of a dairy complex for 1600 heads of cattle began in 2019.
Farms in Urozhay are being built using new technology. It has a heat-insulated awning, concrete walls with insulation, heating pipes mounted in the floors. It is planned to heat the object with electricity, and in the coldest winter days — additionally with firewood. The owners of the farm say that such construction is much cheaper, and manufacturers of awnings and structures (by the way, also local ones) guarantee that the canvas will serve more than 25 years.
The construction site was visited by the Interim Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Agriculture of Bashkortostan Ilshat Fazrakhmanov, during his working trip to the Ilishevsky district. He stressed that such projects will be promoted in Bashkiria.
“Local farmers are already showing interest in such prefabricated structures, as their construction costs are by 35-40 percent cheaper,” he said.
At present, three cowsheds, a milking parlor, and the necessary engineering and technical infrastructure have already been built.
“In the spring, there was a clear field at this place. In April, the project was presented at the “Investment Hour” session in the Government of the republic, and six months later the first barn for 400 heads was ready, a milking parlor was launched, Israeli equipment Afimilk, one of the best herd management companies in the world, was installed, ”said Ilshat Fazrakhmanov.
The system automatically monitors the health of each cow — a bracelet is attached to the animal’s leg, which is read by the system. Besides, in the milking parlor, each milking machine has a mini-laboratory, which determines various indicators of milk.
The system also determines the time of insemination, the volume of milk from each cow, and in the coming months, when the program is fully operational, indicators for proteins, fats, and carbohydrates will also be measured.
According to the minister, the final results on this project implementation will be evaluated after wintering, next spring.
The farmers received support for the implementation of the project: a subsidy for the purchase of cows (compensation in the amount of 50 thousand per head), as well as compensation for part of the costs of building the building. A total of 479.1 million rubles of investments were allocated.
In 2020, the farm plans to put into operation a building for 400 cows and a calf house for 800 heads.
Here it is planned to produce 13.3 thousand tons of milk (36.5 tons per day), an average daily gain of heifers is expected to be about 800 grams per day.
In 2019, nine livestock farms projects are implemented in Bashkiria: five greenfield ones, and four – at stopped or unfinished production sites.
