As many as 2,380 milch cows, qualified in a strict selection process and transported from the US’s Pennsylvania port, arrived at the UST-Luga port of Leningrad on December 18,. They were carried to TH RUS's farm in Kaluga province after completing Russia's strict disease inspection procedures.

Deputy Minister of Agriculture of Kaluga province Gennady Lutsenko hailed the farm for ensuring all the best conditions for cows to produce quality milk not only for Russia but also for export.

For his part, Head of Ulyanovsk district Alexander Anisimov said it is a long-awaited and meaningful event as Ulyanovsk has become one of the best milk production destinations of Kaluga province.

Earlier, cows imported to Moscow province adapted well to living conditions there. The herd grew from 1,100 heads to nearly 2,500 at present. TH Group has so far invested over 120 million USD in agricultural machinery and construction, turning tens of thousands hectares of vacant land into fertile fields to grow wheat, grass, corn, and sunflower, etc.

As planned, TH’s farm projects in Moscow and Kaluga will be completed in late 2023./.
