The head of the farm, Marina Pichueva from the Shilkinsky district of the Trans-Baikal Territory, together with partners from China prepared a project for the construction of a farm for 2,000 cattle, the regional agency “ Zabmedia ” reports.
Investors on both sides are ready to invest 50 million rubles in the implementation of a farm project with their own production. According to Zabmedia, construction of the farm will begin in 2020. The project will be accompanied by the Trans-Baikal Territory Development Corporation. Now investors are looking for the opportunity to buy or rent 500 hectares of land for long-term lease. It is planned to place a housing for animals, a slaughter site and a refrigeration workshop on it. Finished products are going to be exported to China. According to Marina Pichueva, while the main obstacle to business development is the ban on the supply of beef from Russia to China. However, the first deputy head of the regional Ministry of Agriculture, Albina Koreshkova, offers investors to consider other beef markets at first and produce stew for export, because the ban of the PRC Main Customs Directorate does not apply to Russian-made canned meat.
