Unusual experiment in Shklov district

The farm “Bolshiye Slaveni”, Shklov district, is to hold an unusual experiment. The farm keeps 5,000 head of cattle for fattening and 500 head of milk cattle. Anticipating a feed problem the farm made a decision to grow Southern sorts of corn on the separate field. The idea is to find out which of them are more productive in local climate.

This year Mogilev region is to increase head of livestock by thousands. Shklov district is to put into process 10 large dairy farms. There are no intentions to grow feed at the expense of bread and vegetables. That’s why the results achieved by “Bolshiye Slaveni” are of great importance. The farm will choose the best of 30 corn sorts in order to cultivate them next year.

Next step is to select Belarusian sorts of corn.
