The leaders of large agricultural enterprises have come to the Government of Crimea with a proposal to include animal husbandry in the state support program that the regional ministry of agriculture is developing. Now the enterprises of the agro-industrial complex of the republic receive support from the federal budget of Russia - about 300 million rubles a year, which are allocated for these purposes. The Government of Crimea has suggested  to add about 150 million rubles from the regional budget to these funds. The total amount of financing of the agro-industrial complex of Crimea in 2019 amounted to 2.2 billion rubles, but most of the funds are directed to the development of crop production. The regional Ministry of Agriculture is going to include support for dairy farming in the next year’s program.
