In the period from June 6 to 11, 2023, on behalf of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus, the Scientific and Practical Center of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus for Animal Breeding (hereinafter referred to as the Center) took part in the 33rd International Specialized Exhibition Belagro-2023, which was held at the Exhibition Center of the Great Stone Industrial Park.

Алёна.jpgThe Center presented a great deal of developments in the field of creating Belarusian red cattle (a promising model of breeding and selection in Belarus), artificial insemination in pig breeding (Belspermextender), transgenesis in animal husbandry (biosimilar human lactoferrin), dairy cattle housing technology (polymer coating of the box floor), use of promising devices for "smart" farms (device for diagnostics of pre-mastitis condition of udders of lactating cows), feeding (trepel-containing premixes for farm animals). The Center's developments were supported by visual information in the form of leaflets and booklets, as well as video clips.

1686731979396.jpgTasting of milk from red breed cattle and milk from goats producing human lactoferrin was organized on an ongoing basis, which, among other things, ensured high attendance at the Center's booth. For tasting, the Center presented products of its own production — soft goat cheeses made from milk with human lactoferrin, which was not subjected to heat treatment, and from ordinary milk, with the addition of various components (fenugreek, basil), as well as milk from animals producing human lactoferrin, which were highly appreciated by visitors of all ages.

1686732325937.jpgIt should be noted that the production of a cheese curd from non-thermally processed milk with lactoferrin was carried out using a specially selected enzyme, which allowed preserving the natural component composition from the raw materials, which, in turn, can be used in the development of products belonging to the category of "live" dairy products.
Of particular interest was the presence of lactoferrin in products, the biological activity of the protein, the method of its production, and the prospects for use. There was a general opinion about the need for the presence on the market of food products with lactoferrin due to its excellent taste and useful properties. The visitors repeatedly showed their willingness to leave positive comments, feedback, suggestions, gratitude on the products presented by the Center.

1686731872329.jpgOur booth was visited by: Deputy Prime Minister of the Republic of Belarus Zayats L.K., Chairman of the Presidium of NAS of Belarus Gusakov V.G., Deputy Chairman of the Presidium of NAS of Belarus Kazakevich P.P., Chief Scientific Secretary of NAS of Belarus Gursky V.L., Deputy Minister of Agriculture of Syria.
A road map was signed within the framework of the existing agreement with the All-Russian Research Institute of Horse Breeding (Russia, Ryazan), including the stages of formation of a common electronic base, exchange of biomaterial, joint implementation of the project.
Negotiations were held with the director of GASsovprodukt LLC Golubovich A.V. about the possibility of importing semen of elite bulls from Europe, as well as with representatives of the publishing house "Sphere" about organizing joint events in the field of the agro-industrial complex.
The conference "New directions and technologies in livestock breeding" was held as part of the exhibition.

1686732506376.jpgThe following employees of the Center made presentations:
Pesotski Nikolai Ivanovich — Acting Head of Laboratory for Breeding and Selection of Dairy Cattle, Ph.D.Agr.Sci., Associate Professor — "Pure breeding of red dairy cattle in the Republic of Belarus and the prospects for its use in interbreeding with the Holstein breed."
Sapsalev Sergei Alexandrovich — Head of Laboratory for Reproduction, Embryo Transplantation and Animal Transgenesis, Ph.D.Agr.Sci. — "Perspectives of using the technology of intravital oocyte pick up in high-value cows when receiving transplant calves in vitro in the conditions of the Republic of Belarus".
Muzyka Andrei Anatolievich — Head of Laboratory for Development of Intensive Technologies for Production of Milk and Beef, Ph.D.Agr.Sci., Associate Professor — "Perspective directions of improvement of milk production technology in the Republic of Belarus".
