She explained that the farm of 610 vote of the cattle, and winter will calve 250 cows. In the barn in the winter will house approximately 150 heads, so they need to sell. “But to sell the cattle now is very difficult, almost impossible. 50 bulls hard sold,” – says Kiselev. She added that it is impossible to sell meat. Despite the fact that the farm sells meat cheaper health care and education purchased the block of meat at higher prices. “It seems like a budget helps and health care, and education, and we. So why not link it all together?!”, – asks the farmer.
As for the fines, Raddevskiy only in 2016 was fined by the Rosselkhoznadzor on 230 thousand rubles for violations of the bovine leukemia. It considers the penalty illegal, explaining that of the 600 head of cattle leukemia detected only about 10-12 animals, after which they just cut. In addition, she took samples in birobidzhanskiy and Khabarovsk laboratories and they did not coincide with those for which the farm was punished.
