Adding value to food exports, Bakhmatyuk is buying 2,000 head of cattle to create a beef cow center in Zhytomyr

Adding value to food exports, Bakhmatyuk is buying 2,000 head of cattle to create a beef cow center in Zhytomyr. At his Pollisie cluster, the company is building two feed mixers to mix a modern diet of a grain, silage and protein feed. “We are fully provided with feed – 40,000 tons of corn silage, alfalfa, grain are harvested, we grow our own. We buy only protein feed,” Vladimir Levkivsky, head of Pollisie, tells reporters. The cluster also exports breeding cattle to Africa. Overall, Ukraine’s beef exports are to drop by 30% this year, to 29,000 tons. Bakhamtyuk, one of the nation’s five largest agro operators, says in the Ukraine Business Features interview: “Ukraine should adopt a smart strategy to add more value to the grain it produces. We could continue exporting 40 million tons [of grain] and the extra 40 million would go into animal protein production – poultry, beef, pork and eggs.”
