Intensified Farming Supplying 30% of Urban Milk Consumption

01 February 2017

MONGOLIA - Prime Minister J.Erdenebat visited a cattle farm and a herder’s home in Tuv (Central) province on Sunday. Thirty out of the total 1,472 dairy farms in Mongolia are located in Bayanchandmani soum of Tuv aimag.

The intensified farming used to supply only up to 10 per cent of the domestic milk consumption of urban areas 5-6 years ago. The share of farms in supply of milk increased to 30 per cent as of yesterday, as the number of dairy farms rose.

The Premier visited “Montarimal” LLC’s farm, which sells over 370 tons of milk, 7 tons of meat and more than 50 breeding cattle every year. The Montarimal became the best farm of Mongolia in 2011.

Starting off with 12 cows in 1992, the Montarimal is now operating with more than 300 cows of Holstein, Alatau and Normande breeds from Canada, France, Germany, Czech and China.

The farm has a fodder mill, incorporating 25 ha field with irrigation, and 200 ha without irrigation. The farmers grow beet, oat, sudangrass and pea.

The fodder meal production meets the cattle farms' needs, said the director R.Tsogtbuyan.
