Ostrich Meat Instead of Pork?

Ostrich Meat Instead of Pork?

Krasnodar, September 9 – Yug Times. Alternative stockbreeding regains popularity in the Kuban region.

Due to permanent outbreaks of African hog cholera, the regional authorities again remind the farmers about a number of governmental programs meant to motivate them to take up alternative stockbreeding.

A lot of farms worldwide are known to be involved in quail breeding. The Krasnodar region has also reportedly acquired this global trend. One of the most known and best promoted quail farms belongs to Boris Kovalenko from Kropotkin. The farmer says that his business has two advantages: first, it is a fast-moving activity — a quail reaches productive age in 30 to 40 days, and may lay over 280 eggs a year; second, over 70% of his buyers are permanent customers.

The climate in the southern parts of Russia allows farmers to breed ostriches. However, these exotic birds are rather part of agrotourism than a full-value source of meat.

“I do it for my soul,” acknowledges Shagabudin Zurumov, a farmer from the Dinskoi rayon. “My farm is not a production site of meat and milk — it is rather a tourist destination, where the tourists may see peacocks, geese, chickens and pheasants.

Zurumov asserts that ostrich breeding is practically waste-free production: the bones are processed into powder for dog and cat food, and the skin is used for fancy goods, like purses or lady’s bags. The main issue, however, is how to sell the meat: people take it more like something exotic, so it is not is big demand in conventional markets and public catering. Ostrich meat still remains a favourite dainty for the tourists who would necessarily order ostrich meat and omelets.
