Eisenbraun said that JSC Mironovsky Hleboproduct is a leader in poultry production in the Ukraine and plans to introduce beef to the Ukrainian diet by producing it in the country.

"There isn't much demand for beef in that country right now," Eisenbraun said. "And the beef they do have isn't the quality meat that we have here."

As he and his employees have traveled to the Ukraine, Eisenbraun noted that they saw very small herds of only five or six cattle grazing in small areas and tended by a farmer. Larger herds are not currently found there.

"Most of the people in rural areas farm small plots of ground and have just a few cows, a pig or two and some chickens," Eisenbraun said.

"They all seem to have large garden plots. There are fresh vegetables everywhere. By establishing this feedlot, this company would make beef much more available
