In Kazakhstan, livestock population has increased tenfold over the past five years. It has been reported by Agriculture Minister Asylzhan Mamytbekov during the committee meeting on agrarian questions of the Majilis today.

"There is a growing number of livestock in the whole country, including the share of bloodstock. If the share of pedigree cattle was 1.9% in 2009, today this figure has risen to 14.6%, which is almost 10 times," A. Mamytbekov said.

According to him, the increase in bloodstock is not only due to imports, but primarily due to internal reproduction.

"This has become profitable to do. If earlier the price for live weight was about 400-500 tenge per kilogram, the price today for breeding production is about one and a half thousand tenge per kilogram of body weight, and it is a profitable business. People realized this and started to actively increase livestock," A. Mamytbekov said.
