Today, as part of his working visit to Atyrau region, Prime Minister Bakytzhan Sagintayev visited the first in Kazakhstan project specializing in goat raising and processing goat’s milk, the agricultural enterprise Saraishyk.
During the inspection of the cattle-breeding complex in the village of Saraichikovsky, Makhambet district, Bakytzhan Sagintayev was informed about the progress of implementation of the State program for the development of the agro-industrial complex in the region. The volume of gross agricultural output in the region in 2017 amounted to 62.7 billion tenge, growth for January-February 2018 compared to the same period last year was 1.5%.
The cattle-breeding farm “Saraishyk” contains a large herd of sheep, camels, horses and a meat processing workshop. At the same time, the key focus of the agricultural enterprise is the cultivation of goats of the Zaanen breed (note: the world’s best dairy goat breed) and the production of goat’s milk. Applied Italian and Serbian equipment allows producing 180 tonnes of goat milk and 140 tonnes of dairy products per year.
According to the Director of the farm V. Rozmetov, 450 pedigree goats were introduced in the framework of expansion, 300 heads of litter have been received to date. At the first stage it is planned to produce: 81 tonnes of pasteurized milk, 21.6 tonnes of yogurt, 15.3 tonnes of cheeses in assortment and 4 tonnes of goat meat.
Also, it is planned to launch production of baby food at the farm, which in its properties is almost on par with mother’s milk. Ice cream and goat milk butter will be produced in the near future.
A project of this type is being implemented in Kazakhstan for the first time. Created with the support of the State Program for forced industrial-innovative development, the farm has already paid most of the soft loan.
It should be noted that the development of agricultural entrepreneurship in the country will be greatly influenced by the implementation of the fourth direction of the President’s Five Social Initiatives.
