We are in third place in the country in terms of milk production, in ninth place in terms of livestock and poultry production, and the production of beef is in third place. By the number of cattle it is in fourth place in the country, by the number of pigs - the fourth, by the number of horses - the third place,” said Mikhail Chmyrev.
