Holstein cows raised at Aurora factory in the Vologda region were displayed in the Animal husbandry sector of the Golden Autumn – 2022. This breed is known for high milk production: one cow produces an average of 14,000 kg of milk per year. Moreover, all breeding characteristics and data on each animal are monitored via Russian information system.

Dairy cattle breeding is one of the priorities for agribusiness development. The support received from the government allowed farmers to increase milk production, which is expected to reach 32,5 million tons in 2022.

A total of 47 billion rubles were allocated in support of dairy cattle breeding in 2021, including 10,5 billion rubles assigned for the purchase of feeds, which allowed preserving dairy livestock in many regions during the drought.
