Cattle breeding problems in Georgia
By Messenger Staff
Thursday, June 17Cattle and poultry breeding are facing problems in Georgia. Specialists assess that the number of cattle in the country has decreased by 300,000 pigs by 600,000 sheep by 300,000 and poultry by 3 million. They say that Georgia can breed around 2.5 million sheep, around 1.7 million cattle, around 35 million poultry and so on, but this sector of agriculture needs to receive very serious and thoughtful support from the Government.
If this sector also becomes import dependent, and this exacerbates the general import dependency, this would be catastrophic for the country. Until recently Georgia met a large share of its agricultural products needs domestically.
