Abstract
The development of dairy cattle breeding in the country and regions was given a new impetus in modern economic and geopolitical conditions. The success of the opportunities provided directly depends on the prevention of threats associated with the receipt of cheap non-regional and imported products, difficulties in the sale of milk due to the lack of dairy factories, extreme weather conditions leading to a lack of fodder. Despite the fact that there is a positive trend in milk production in Astrakhan region, annual growth remains insufficient to ensure the lower threshold of food security of milk and dairy products. The attention was given to the following methods of research: methods of comparative analysis; economic and statistical methods; method of SWOT analysis and economic and mathematical modelling. Using the economic-mathematical model based on polynomial growth curves, development trends are predicted and long-term prospects for the successful functioning of the dairy cattle breeding sector are defined. The strategic directions of development of the sector in the region should include orientation to large-scale production with the creation of agro-clusters including the production, processing and selling of dairy products; food reserve optimization; improving the breeding and productive abilities of cows through the use of local genetic material and not through the purchase of expensive young breeders from abroad. The implementation of the proposed strategic directions will allow the region to solve the problem of food security of milk and dairy products.
