In recent years, there has been an increase in livestock production. Beef production amounted to 477 thousand tons, which provides 98% of domestic consumption. Lamb production amounted to 150 thousand tons, pork — 86 thousand tons. In 2018, exports of beef amounted to 19.9 thousand tons, lamb — 3 thousand tons, pork — 400 tons.

At the same time, the consumption of poultry meat is growing rapidly. The pace of export of edible eggs is increasing: according to last year’s results, 680 million eggs were exported,” said Omarov.

Milk production volumes amounted to 5.7 million tons. The number of cattle increased to 7.2 million heads, sheep — up to 18.7 million heads, horses — 2.6 million heads, poultry — 44.3 million heads.

In the framework of the 2017–2021 State Program for the AIC Development, the Ministry of Agriculture implemented long-term sectoral programs for the development of livestock industries.

The long-term program for the development of beef cattle breeding envisages the creation in 10 years of 80,000 family farms in beef cattle and sheep farming, which will work in cooperation with feedlots and meat processing plants. The program is aimed at increasing the export potential of beef and lamb.

The long-term program of dairy farming is aimed at import substitution of dairy products. In general, by increasing the number of industrial and family-type dairy farms, it is planned to increase the volume of milk production by 1 million tons to replenish processing capacity.
