Belarus, Hungary to expand cooperation in poultry farming

MINSK, 24 June (BelTA) – Belarus' Agriculture and Food Minister Ivan Krupko met with Hungarian Ambassador to Belarus Zsolt Csutora to discuss the state and prospects for the development of bilateral trade and economic relations in agriculture and further cooperation in seed farming and poultry breeding, BelTA learned from the press service of the Agriculture and Food Ministry.

“The work in these areas is already underway. The 1st Minsk Poultry Factory and Hungary's Babolna Tetra signed an agreement on breeding layer young stock. The Hungarian partner will supply the 1st Minsk Poultry Factory with day-old nucleus chickens from the Tetra brown and Tetra white baseline crosses to improve the quality of the Belarusian cross and to provide Belarusian poultry factories with nucleus layer stocks,” the press service informed. Thanks to this project, from this year Belarus will not almost have to import breeding flocks of laying hens, and starting from 2023 will be able to fully provide the domestic market with its own breed of world-class laying chickens.

As it has been reported, a memorandum of understanding on cooperation in poultry breeding was concluded during the official meeting of Belarusian Prime Minister Roman Golovchenko and Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban on 5 June. The document was signed by Ivan Krupko and Hungarian Foreign and Foreign Trade Minister Peter Szijjarto. According to the memorandum, the parties will assist each other in the development of cooperation between the enterprises of the two countries on several fronts. Among them are the supply of nucleus chickens from the baseline high-yielding crosses, support for joint ventures and investment cooperation to develop geese farming in Belarus on the basis of highly productive Hungarian breeds of geese, attracting new technologies in the manufacture of poultry products. The memorandum also provides for cooperation in R&D, exchange of information, technical documentation and experience in poultry breeding.
