There are 21 regions with more than 20 kilograms of milk per cow. The Kaliningrad region has traditionally been among the leaders.

According to the regional Ministry of agriculture, thanks to the introduction of advanced technologies and the use of the latest breeding achievements, the Kaliningrad region has consistently been one of the leaders in the development of the dairy industry in Russia over the past few years.

According to the Ministry of agriculture of the region, the need for whole milk is provided for 100 %, the supply of deep-processed dairy products (cheeses, cottage cheese products) is about 80 %. At the same time, the self-sufficiency of residents of the region for dairy products has increased to 80% since 2014 from 55 %.

To increase the availability of milk and dairy products in the region, a new dairy complex of the group of companies “Zalesskoye Moloko” is being put into operation for 3,900 heads of dairy cattle. It is expected that the volume of milk production here will reach about 25 thousand tons per year. Since 2019, farms are being gradually equipped with breeding cattle of specialized dairy Holstein breed. This work is planned to be completed in 2020. In parallel, the zalesskoye Moloko group has implemented a project to build a highly specialized breeding and genetic center with the content of Holstein bulls.
