The first buffalo breeding farm in the region was opened in the Babayurtovsky district of Dagestan. Kefir, yogurt, cottage cheese, cheeses, including the popular mozzarella, will be made from buffalo milk.
Buffaloes in Dagestan are well known to residents of rural areas. Since ancient times, they have been used as a draft force during plowing, they received meat and milk, and shoes were made from leather. But they did not breed buffalo on an industrial scale.
