Russia: Rules for Allocation of Subsidies for Purebred Livestock Breeding

The Russian government’s “Rules for the Allocation and Distribution of Subsidies from the Federal Budget of the Russian Federation to the Regional Budgets for the Support of Livestock Breeding” were amended in early 2015. The amendment includes key qualification requirements, published by the Russian Ministry of Agriculture in late 2014, as well as lists of breeding stock producers eligible for subsidies from the federal budget (including beef and dairy purebred breeding cattle operations and genetics producers). Moreover, in the spring of 2015, given the current economic situation in Russia, the Russian Ministry of Agriculture issued additional recommendations to support domestic producers of purebred breeding cattle. Unofficial translations of all of the aforementioned publications are contained herein.
