Prime Minister visits dairy farmers

Summary: Prime Minister J. Erdenebat paid a visit to Bayanchandmani soum of Tuv Province. Currently, 30% of dairy products supplied to urban areas come from domestic producers. The PM noted that in order to support domestic farmers and dairy product manufacturers, and to protect domestic companies, limitations should be placed on the import of dairy products. After visiting the home of a local herder, the PM stated, “Herders should pay special attention to the quality not the quantity of their livestock and their products. Mongolian meat is the tastiest, but consumers from other nations are not aware of its quality. Therefore, we must develop the livestock sector to meet international standards, and our short-term goal is to bring our veterinary sciences to international standards and to heal our livestock. The government will focus on these areas and will bring youth to the livestock sector.”
