The condition of the breeding farm “Pushkinsky” can be described with one word – tragedy. The enterprise once could boast of 100 units of machinery, about 600 employees and 180.000 animals. Nowadays there is no money to run it, only 2 tractors, 140 employees and 10.000 animals. These are boring figures, the pictures will tell you more about the condition of the enterprise.
The food for the animals is enough for several weeks and there is no money to buy it. One may only imagine what’s going to happen when the food is over.
One black sable fur coasts about $1000. In a good condition, of course, that most of the animals can’t boast of.
Animals live in such sheds.
Many are destroyed and empty.
The workers are unique professionals, many are hereditary fur farmers. Many are here from the 80s. This month they are not going to receive their small salary, but they still work, not for money.
Feed-preparation house once could prepare 60 tons of food a day. Soon it will have no work at all.
There is a retail store near the enterprise. It once belonged to the farm, then it was bought out.
