Today in the "agribusiness", "non-insurance case: the Kuban said losses from the cold winter." "Do not buy, and take: a new technology comes to the farmers through agricultural leasing." "Lost in Translation: will Russia in marbled meat." "Now is not solesh: fuel counters against theft of diesel fuel."
An emergency. Kuban said losses from the cold winter.
In this field of life is no more. Dead brown instead of green —
All my life in agriculture, said Maxim, but this loss was not. Well, exactly 30 years nothing like this. Economy suffered multimillion-dollar damages. A cover crop in the autumn did not. We thought, why spend the money when the winter in the region — warm. Now the dead field urgently need replanted corn, peas, soybeans, think about where to buy seeds, extra fuel, fertilizer. And the most difficult where to get all this money. Very difficult situation with winter crops has prompted
However, though the main cost-saving crop will fall on the shoulders of farmers, because their fields have not been insured.
The national project. As in Ingushetia replaced all agricultural machinery.
Alexey Anisimov, mechanic: "That this is not there, then. Air, air goes.'s Winter, winter or autumn zavedesh not have it. Should cover the air, do not have that, then what else. They removed the steering column, it's good they have done."
This is what is called the "find 10 differences". Machine operator Alexey Anisimov compares the tractor 20 years ago with the modern. For the person with the experience most importantly — a new technique. That is not idle. If the central part of Russia just getting ready for planting, then the south of the country spring sowing in full swing.
In the beginning of the year
Tarhan Gaydukaev, mechanic: "I went up to Ramzan and say," Ramzan, I want to work. "He says, 'Who will soon be the new tractor, I'll give you a new tractor. Will you work." How have new tractor, he calls me — quickly come. I come here you are, work as you want. "
The updated fleet of equipment, in the rotation of the republic back ground, which for years have not been used for its intended purpose.
This year in the country have relied on a sunflower and wheat. Despite the lingering winter, hoping to gather the harvest time and in the record for the number of Ingushetia.
Livestock. Will Russia marbled meat.
Vyacheslav Gorbachev, breeder: "Yellowish, maybe somehow, marble, what? Well, gray meat, red. There what the hell knows. I've never seen it."
What kind of meat is — marble? From these bulls breed
g given breeder with experience Vyacheslav Gorbachev. Young heifers from Australia to Penza economy came only 3 years ago. And this is their offspring graze on local fields.
Create beef herd has decided Penza 150 households. To support the project at the start area to urgently develop a program of grants for the first 3 years. They promise to finance and the calf and its mother, and then pay extra for every kilogram of beef sold.
In the next two years Penza authorities intend to bring down the price of chilled beef at retail. Indeed, because of its scarcity value has risen steadily and is now more expensive than pork. However, while the plan to saturate the market with the usual high-quality beef. Major projects are being implemented in Lipetsk and Bryansk regions. In the meantime, on the shelves of supermarkets and restaurants, steaks from the Australian, New Zealand or the U.S. chilled beef.
Veronika Maximova, a representative of the company: "Well, then, here you can see, yes. How many streaks of intramuscular fat here. Here it is almost white, yes, meat. And here, it is almost none. Why marble because the piece, in principle, similar to marble, yes.'s Due These streaks of fat. "
Marbling — is intramuscular fat layer in the meat, which, when heated, melted, penetrate into the meat and make it tender and juicy. Such beef is considered premium. Its in Russia from abroad delivered three large and a dozen small companies.
Veronika Maximova, a representative of the company: "We absolutely do not feel any impact on our local beef supply, and I would call it even more experimental production in Russia than in some production on an industrial scale."
Generally marbled meat is in bulls grass or grain fed. In Australia, the values of marbling from 0 to 9. Bull meat raised on grass-fed, marbling will be small, no more than 3. And to get that perfect steak goby needs fattening combined.
Veronika Maximova, a representative of the company: "Bull in 12-17 months goes from pasture feeding on grain, that is, it is placed in the fattening facility where he receives a specially selected grain diet."
Prices for high-quality chilled beef are very different from the origin, and the marbling of the meat cut from 800 to 04.03 rubles per kilogram. But the market for chilled marble meat is very small, the total imported beef less than 2%, which is about 1.5 million tons per year. Yet experts acknowledge, with high rates of spread of beef cattle in the country and support the regions, already in 10 years marbled meat will become familiar product on the table of most Russians.
Rewarding experience. "Fuel counters — against the theft of diesel fuel."
It's great that none of the tractor in the end did not quit, with a sigh of relief today
The farm stands firmly on his feet, but such costs can not afford. A liter of fuel costs as three liters of milk. Because the day before the next planting season, quite a large sum of money spent on the purchase of meters.
Alexei Chernyshev, chief engineer: "Drain the fuel is no longer possible. All recorded in the log. At its LCD display shows the time and the operation of the tractor, and fuel consumption. Device can not be fooled, there are sensors on the intervention."
First, it has given rise to serious conflicts of distrust between management and machine operators. but gradually the controversy subsided, and the fuel consumption was reduced by 30%. All tractor drivers, as has been said, remained at his workplace. And now kristalnochestnye only sometimes mocks those who were not joking.
Mikhail Nikolayev, mechanic: "To manage this, of course, better economy, and so now because diesel fuel leaked everywhere it can be sold. Not a problem."
Interested in this example of the neighboring farms. Some have already bought and installed counters on their machines.
