According to published preliminary data of the SSSU, the total number of cows in Ukraine as of January 1, 2022 decreased by 6.6% - to 1 million 563.3 thousand heads.
One of the requirements of the new Law on Veterinary Medicine is a ban on the use of antibiotics in animal husbandry for prophylactic purposes. Vitalii Bashynskyi, the head of the Public Council at the State Service of Ukraine of Food Safety and Consumer Protection, explains why such a need arose and how it concerns dairy farms.
On November 24, the team of the back office and active members of the Association of Milk Producers (AMР) met with the organizers of the project "Strengthening Business Associations of Small and Medium Enterprises" - representatives of the Swiss Cooperation Office in Ukraine (SECO) and UNDP in Ukraine.
As of November 1, the number of cows in Ukraine decreased by 6.1%. Their total number was 1 million 634.6 thousand heads. Industrial farms remained with last year's figures - 420.6 thousand heads, which corresponds to 25.7% of the total population. The remaining 1 million 214 thousand heads (74.3%) were kept in the household sector - here the statistics recorded a drop in livestock of 8%.
Expectations to stabilize the upward price trend are confirmed. Monitoring of prices this week showed the same average prices for milk from the farm.
Gross milk yield for 10 months of the current year amounted to 7 million 528.4 thousand tons, which is 6% less than for the same period last year. This was due to a significant drop in production in households.
