As you know, Soyuzmoloko has rich experience in this issue; it is enough to remember the program of development of dairy industry and pedigree dairy cattle breeding, worked out in consultation with BCG and KPMG. We will remind, the cost of the first work in 2014 amounted to 10 million rubles.

As stated in the Ministry of agriculture of the Republic of Bashkortostan, involving Soyuzmoloko into the development of the program, the region takes into account that they are the developers of the Federal program.
It is worth noting that Soyuzmoloko has worked out its own program of development of dairy cattle breeding, the regulations of which must be included into the Federal program. However, at the moment there is only a Road map of activities for the development of pedigree cattle breeding.

"We have engaged the National Union of milk producers "Soyuzmoloko", because they are the developers of the Federal program, and it is important for us to be immediately included in it, it is important for us to get support from the federal institutions and from investors, while also co-financing of important events from the budget of the Republic of Bashkortostan", – commented the Deputy Prime Minister of the Government of the Republic of Bashkortostan Irek Mukhametdinov.
The next region in the queue has become the Udmurt Republic. During the meeting with the Head of the region Alexander Brechalov, representatives of "Streda-Consulting" discussed the format of cooperation in the sphere of development of such sector of agriculture as the production of milk.
"Analysis of raw milk production in the Udmurt Republic will allow to work out a long-term program of development of dairy sector and form a strategy for the development of existing raw milk producers and the necessary mechanisms of the state support", - reported in the government of the Udmurt Republic.
Within two days the managers and specialists of the company visited a number of farms and enterprises of the Republic. In particular, they visited some farms in Karakulino and Uva regions, the production site of "Sarapul-Moloko" JSC "MILKOM", got acquainted with the activities of the company "Uva-Moloko".

The Head of Udmurtia Alexander Brechalov proposed to gather a community of representatives of the agricultural sector of the Republic to produce, finally, a strategy for the development of the industry.
"There must be collegial and well-considered decision of all members of agro-industrial complex. You must work together with all players to understand the priority issues and strategic objectives. For us the agricultural sector is a key direction, but in order to make a decision about which aspects of agriculture require support in the first place, we need to get a system solution from the industry," - said Alexander Brechalov. He ordered the first Deputy Chairman of the regional government Alexander Svinin to take the issue of cooperation with LLC "Streda Consulting" under his personal control and to assist in the organization of the meeting of leaders of agro-industrial complex of the Republic.
In Bashkortostan the development of the situation went according to the calculation of the required public money for the implementation of investment projects that will allow to increase milk production.
The purpose of the program in Bashkortostan is to produce 1.7 million tons of milk a year. To do this, as noted by the Head of the regional Dairy Union Ildar Faizullin, it is possible to follow three directions. "Investors that will build 2-3 modern mega farm for not less than 2,500 head per year. There is planned co-financing from the regional budget - about 1 billion rubles per year and about 3 billion rubles from the Federal budget. It is planned that according to the program the farms of the Republic will reach the average productivity of 6.6 thousand kg per cow per year", - presented the design of the program Ildar Faizullin at the event in Ufa, held in autumn this year.
LOBBISTS IN BUSINESS
Officially the cost of the programs proposed for development in the regions is not called. However, for example, in Bashkortostan, funding the development was carried out by industry and government in the ratio 50: 50. Soyuzmoloko operates in accordance with the proven scheme: proposing construction of mega-farms under a solid state co-financing it paves the way for investors represented by the executor – LLC "Streda", which strongly recommends attracting large investments. Otherwise it won’t be possible to achieve the task for producing additional 5-7 million tons of milk by 2020 set by the Federal center
The possibility of the proposed by Soyuzmoloko numbers of co-financing is the only question. The state to this day from year to year reduces the amount of budget funds allocated to support agro-industrial complex and the dairy industry as a whole. It is very easy to work out a program, saying, what quantity of money is necessary for the growth of milk production. The only thing, the industry doesn’t have a guarantee of getting this money.
