A modern cattle-breeding complex to be organized in Kanimekh district

Last year, a camel farm, organized in Kanimekh district of Navoi region, received 3 thousand tourists from 61 countries. Taking into account the increased attention in Uzbekistan to the development of the livestock sector, it is planned to organize a complex for 1 thousand camels and 500 thoroughbred goats. It is planned to purchase thoroughbred goats from abroad for a modern cattle-breeding complex worth 15,7 billion sums. A thousand tons of camel and 300 tons of goat milk will be processed here every year. At the same time, the complex will represent a modern ecotourism center capable of hosting 10 thousand tourists a year.

Camel milk has a number of useful properties. It contains vitamins A, B1, B2, C and D three times more than in cow milk. It is rich in calcium, potassium, magnesium, iron, copper, zinc, manganese, phosphorus and other microelements. In addition, camel milk has many elastin, lanolin, lactoferrin and other nutrients. This product is useful for prevention and treatment of diabetes mellitus, anemia, heart disease, nervous, respiratory and gastrointestinal system, liver, as well as strengthens the immune system.

Visitors to the complex will be able to taste camel milk, ride in desert on camels and quad bikes.

The Head of the state gave instructions to the officials on completing construction of the complex before the Independence Day of Uzbekistan and creating necessary conditions for tourists.

Creation by Navoi Mining and Metallurgical Combinat of a cattle-breeding complex for 4 thousand sheep in Tamdin district is among the promising projects. It will serve to development of karakul breeding and creation of new jobs in the region.
