Agro Animal Show is the most important platform for animal husbandry and agricultural technology in Ukraine. At the last edition, 529 companies from 24 countries showed their complete range of state-of-the-art solutions for livestock, animal husbandry and agricultural technology to some 18,000 business professionals. Official pavilions from Austria, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Great Britain and the Netherlands underlined the international character of the exhibition.
With 32.5 m ha of arable land and one-third of the worlds fertile black earth, Ukrainian agriculture has a huge potential. In 2019, Ukraine again attained a record harvest (75 m tons) and also the exports of sun flower oil, barley and wheat reached new heights Agriculture has always been one of the major sectors of the Ukrainian economy – its share of the GDP amounts to approximately 10% with agricultural products accounting for 44.2% of the Ukrainian export revenues.
However, due to the shortage of state-of-the-art equipment experts estimate that 5-6 m. tons are lost annually. The insufficient equipment of the industrial plants also affects the average yields in grain, sun flowers, rapeseed, sugar beets and potatoes with results way below the Western European level. According to estimates of the Ukrainian Agricultural Ministry Ukrainian farmers need 40,000 new tractors and 5,000 new combines every year to keep up with the demands of the export markets. The Ukrainian Government, thus, subsidizes livestock farms and agricultural machinery purchases with 2.8 bn. UAH in 2019.
Livestock in Ukraine has been gaining more and more importance. The poultry sector driven by exports has been rapidly developing, especially since 2013, when Ukraine started to export poultry and egg products tothe EU. In 2019, the exports of poultry products again rose by 20% reaching 416,600 tons.
