At present the farmers have not necessity to go and bring cattle from abroad from Canada, Australia, Holland and so on. Today we have enough breeding cattle received on the territory of our country. Purchasing of cattle of so called “second generation” helps not only save on delivery and transportation of cattle, but also decrease delivery term, receive more adaptive cattle, genealogy and guarantee from compatriot – owner of Kazakhstan reproductive farm. At present our company already leased out more than 8 000 heads of breeding cattle born in our country. Sale of breeding youth is mainly implemented by auction. Today not less than five large auctions were held when farmers could select breeding servicing bulls ourselves. This summer (03.07.15) in Kostanay region the First international open auction of breeding cattle in Kazakhstan will be held. 180 breeding bulls and 130 breeding heifers of Aberdeen-Angus breed will be put up.
