Farmer is looking for money
The owner of the first ostrich farm in Transcarpathia Vasyl Perets is the oldest and the most beloved participant of the TV show "Farmer seeks wife". The 5 birds brought over 10 years ago from Holland have "evolved" into 56 adult birds and 22 chicks.
Today, Mr. Vasyl is also known as the owner of a pair of ponies Mircea and Helya adored by young visitors of the bird farm... In addition, he is also a great cynologist, lover and connoisseur of working dogs. But the Transcarpathian has a new idea - crocodile breeding. This idea shocks everyone who hears about it, except for Mr. Vasyl himself.
"Crocodile leather is very expensive, their claws, bones and teeth are sold well for accessories. And the problem with feeding could be solved with another project - the breeding of the African catfish. I have seen it done in Hungary, at a local farm," - Mr. Vasyl said to the newspaper "Nedilya."
The implementation of the project requires at least 250 thousand dollars. But the money will be quickly recovered. The Transcarpathian farmer does not expect any support from the state, relying exclusively on his own optimism, dedication and hard work.
