Establishment of the Animal Market was initiated under the "Livestock Development in the Syunik Marz" Project (implemented by Strategic Development Agency and financed by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation). The aim of its establishment was to stimulate the cattle trade in Syunik and Vayots Dsor regions through development of a stably functioning animal market/fair. It would allow to bring various buyers and sellers/farmers into one organized marketplace and create convenient conditions for the parties to make business deals in alive animals’ trade.
Animal Market/Farm provides Animal Trade services to farmers and traders from Syunik, Vayots Dsor and other regions of Armenia. Traditional trade transactions between the market players as well as more innovative approaches are applied.
