Currently the number of breeding stock of cattle amounts at 5,6 % from country's total cattle stock. The breeding stock of beef cattle do not exceed 2%, two way cattle 1,9%. Due to the small amount of high producing beef cattle, young stock and culled cattle are slaughtered. Also the most breeding stock of beef cattle is situated in big companies, the share of which do not exceed 4%. The main cattle stock is located mainly in households, which amounts 81 % of the total animal stock in the country, and households do not divide the stock into beef and milk producing cattle.
To improve the genetic potential of beef cattle creation of chain of nucleus farms by importing the breeding cattle from foreign countries is planned. Thus, KazAgro offers soft lending to increase the breeding stock and by using high productive breeding bulls to improve the productivity indicators of bovine offspring.
