The gubernatorial breed of geese is considered very young: it was bred in our country three years ago by breeders from the Kurgan region at the breeding plant “Makhalov”. Scientists after eleven years of fruitless attempts at last could cross two goose varieties – “Shadrinskaya” and “Italian” breeds
This “royal” breed combines the best qualities of crossed species. The trunk of the right proportions, a small and long head with the absence of a characteristic knob, the neck reaches a medium size. The paws and the beak have an orange color habitual for geese. The main difference from other breeds of geese is their fluff and feathers, which have good thermal insulation properties. The adult gander reaches a weight of 4-6.5 kg, the goose is slightly smaller. Outwardly, they are practically no different from their Italian counterparts. The governor’s breed of geese, like Shadrin’s, has a special “marble” meat
Productivity of the breed: Geese geese have a number of advantages over other breeds: High degree of fertilization and egg production due to the polygamous nature of the breed; Tasty and nutritious meat; Practically 100% survival of newborn goslings in the first months of life; Rapid growth of the bird: already at 8-9 weeks of age the goslings are very similar to adults
Risks of the Gusakov breed of this species are not so easy to feed: three kilograms of feed per kilogram of goose weight is a little expensive business. Also young animals are required to carry out periodic vaccination against various infectious and parasitic diseases. Infection often occurs in the incubator by airborne droplets or by low-quality water and causes a large population loss
If there are parasites – such a bird is immediately stabbed. Price category Prices for governor geese fluctuate within reasonable limits, the average cost is 700 rubles per head. Young geese will cost their future owner cheaper. Widely distributed in their “homeland” – the Kurgan region. For breeding, people often come for geese to the factory “Mahalov” – high chances to buy a really healthy bird with a good egg lay.
