Currently the main goal of Russian agricultural industry is to provide the citizens with high-quality competitive domestic production. This goal can be also achieved with the help of dairy husbandry development. Production of high-quality dairy products depends on many factors: fodder supply, housing, climate factors and the genetic potential of animals. Improvement of cattle gene pool in farms of Primorsky Krai is provided by import of foreign highly-productive Holstein cattle from Northern America, Canada, Europe (Germany, Hungary, Holland). The experience of working with foreign dairy cattle in Khankaysky agro-industrial complex GreenAgro is represented in the article. The analysis of GreenAgro`s work let make a number of recommendations for farm enterprises and other forms of agricultural enterprises, which plan to run dairying. These recommendations are development of homegrown fodder supply for high-yielding dairy cows, using the semen of Holstein breeding bulls for insemination of local cattle for the purpose of getting offspring with 50 % chance of being pure blood and improvement of breed characteristics of local cattle.
