On August 27, 2020, the production of the extruded feed was launched in the Ysyk-Ata district. The event was opened by the Chairman of the Management Board of the OJSC “Guarantee Fund” Malik Abakirov.
Aralbek Abdyrasulov was previously engaged in feeding sheep using the stall keeping method on his farm near Bishkek. Having received a loan under the guarantee of the Guarantee Fund, the farmer purchased 2 extruders for the preparation of feed with a production capacity of 400 kg/hour.
During his acquaintance with the production process, M. Abakirov expressed confidence in the implementation of the tasks set by Aralbek Abdyrasulov. “The opening of such enterprises opens up a real opportunity for increasing the export of meat to the markets of neighboring states, increasing the revenue side of the budget, solving the issue of employment of the population” – said M. Abakirov. “The production of extruded feed was launched thanks to the program “Intensive Sheep Breeding” developed by the OJSC “Guarantee Fund”, and today we already see the results of the support we provided within the project. Therefore, we are ready to further support our entrepreneurs in the implementation of their plans, ideas and initiatives,” added the head of the Guarantee Fund.
“Extruded feed allows to reduce the period of time for the sheep to gain weight, reducing the feeding period from 130 days to 90-100. The feed produced by me is twice as nutritious and is better absorbed – by 85-90% “- A. Abdyrasulov told about the advantages of extruded feed.
If until today the farmer used an apparatus with a capacity of 60 kg/hour and used feed only for his own needs, today A. Abdyrasulov is busy solving the issue of selling his products.
The farmer is convinced that the feed he produces will be in demand among domestic farmers; he plans to purchase additional necessary equipment and increase feed production. “Thanks to the support of the Guarantee Fund and the project developed by it, I was able to realize my plans, but I still have some promising ideas, and I still count on help and cooperation with the Guarantee Fund,” Aralbek Abdyrasulov said.
