Bulgaria's livestock breeders will postpone their blockade of the Trakia highway until Thursday.

The Chair of the National Association of Stock Breeders, Boyko Sinapov revealed in front of bTV that the blockade, which was scheduled for Tuesday, will be postponed by 2 days.

The stock breeders are dissatisfied with the government over unpaid subsidies for their pastures.

"Over the last few days, we have seen serious efforts on the part of Agriculture Minister Dimitar Grekov to solve this crisis", commented Sinapov.

The stock breeders want 70% of their entitled subsidies to be paid, but the government is prepared to pay only 40% by the end of 2013.
