In 2019, 113 thousand tons of beef in slaughter weight were produced in Bashkortostan. This is the best indicator in the country. The region's share in the all-Russian production of cattle meat is 7%. The self-sufficiency of the republic with this type of meat is 140 percent.

The main task set for agrarians in the coming years is to increase the share of high-quality beef production obtained from animal meat breeds.

"The share of meat and cross-bred stock in beef production is growing. Now, this is one-third of the total volume of cattle meat obtained in agricultural enterprises and farms. In 2019, a program for the development of beef cattle breeding was developed and adopted in the Republic of Bashkortostan, with measures to support agricultural producers raising beef cattle," commented on the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Agriculture of Bashkortostan Ilshat Fazrakhmanov.

The Head of the Republic, in his "September decree," set a task to build ten modern high-tech cattle feedlots by the end of 2024.
