At EuroTier 2018, an international trade fair run by the German Agricultural Society (DLG), Kazakhstan and China presented their ambitious plans for enhancing animal production. The targets they have set themselves are a response to a strongly increasing demand for meat on the national and international markets.

The tectonics of world trade has been changing for some time now. Whereas until ten years ago, North America and Western Europe had dominated international trade in the agriculture sector, the emerging economies have now entered the emporium as new actors. As the world population grows and more and more meat is consumed, a new round is now starting in agricultural production.

Kazakhstan and China are intensifying their cattle and pig production and are increasingly seeking to supply neighbouring countries as well as their own domestic markets with produce. The Kazakh beef producers and the German-Sino Cooperation Project on Animal Breeding and Husbandry in China gave accounts of their plans at the DLG EuroTier 2018 trade fair, which was held in Hannover/Germany in November.

Beef from Kazakhstan

Kazakhstan is the world’s ninth largest country and has sufficient water and pastureland for the production of beef and mutton. Currently, a total of 1.5 million hectares of land was under irrigation, Meat Union of Kazakhstan Chairman Maksut Baktibayev explained in Hanover.
