THE IMPACT OF PROMOTING THE LIVESTOCK FARMING DEVELOPMENT IN KAZAKHSTAN
Promoting livestock farming development has gradually created an enormous challenge due to various issues associated with enhancing farming strategies to improve the development of livestock farming. The availability of credits, innovation, and farming training has been identified as challenges that hinder the continuous growth of livestock farming development in Kazakhstan. These challenges trigger the farmers’ low GDP, poverty, and low quality of life towards promoting their well-being. Hence, this study aimed to examine the impact of promoting livestock farming development in Kazakhstan. The adoption of simple random helps collect data from the questionnaires for the quantitative analysis concerning livestock farming development. The survey was self-administered to the farmers based on adopting and adapting the theories and previous studies as a research instrument for collecting data and validating using expert review and pre-testing. A sample of 200 farmers was selected based on the random sampling technique. The researcher received a sample of 175 questionnaires, with success and a response rate of 87.5%. Next, 30 samples of pilot study data were validated using Exploratory Factor Analysis (EFA). Later, the field study data were analysed using IBM-SPSS version 28.0 for the regression analysis to test the hypotheses. This study confirmed a significant and positive correlation between the availability of credits, innovation, farmer training and livestock farming development. In addition, the results from regression analysis showed that the availability of credits, innovation, and farmer training helps promote livestock farming development in Kazakhstan. In conclusion, the availability of credits, innovation, and farmer training helps to improve the development of livestock farming. Enhancing access to credits and farmer training has impacted the success rate of promoting livestock farming in Kazakhstan. This study is significant in addressing the gap found in the previous studies while contributing to the body of knowledge and promoting livestock farming development in Kazakhstan.
