We start 2015 with 1800 Holstein Friesian cows, heifers, youth and steers. We’re building the biggest barn model of European Union, with a 800 heads capacity.
We are the most efficient milk farm in Romania, we have an average of 32 liters/day/cow. In order to achieve this, we use the best fodder, the most modern barns (Rota Guido – Italy), the latest and most sophisticated milking station (GEA Westfalia – Germania).
We are currently producing 16.000 liters of milk per day and beginning with June 2015 we will reach a capacity of 25.000 liters of milk per day.
Our cows have champion genes. The insemination material is provided by partners from EU and USA, we work with World Wide Sires. The cows’ nutrition is established together with a nutrition specialist Austria.
The animals’ food is 99% made of our own agricultural holdings. The conditions in our barns are excellent, we have automatic cleaning systems, robots that push the forages to the feeding front, permanent fresh water systems, fans, scratching brushes and many others.
The result of all these investments can be seen in the excellent milk quality.
Our milk has the following features, as the average statistics of 2014:
Fat content 4.51; protein 3.19; cells 410.08; urea 25.54; lactose 4.73; conductivity 2839.78; dry substance 13.82
By changing the nutrition of the animals we can modify the parameters of the milk.
Our milk is very clean, the presence of microorganisms is very low.
When the milk leaves the farm, it contains 1 carbohydrate – lactose, 3 types of fats, 18 types of proteins, 6 vitamins, 4 minerals.
The process of cows’ insemination also implies the annual birth of an important number of steers. They are raised for beef. Besides Holstein, we already have copies of Black Angus, Red Angus, Blue Belgique. We intend to expend to other breeds such as Charolais, Montbeliarde.
The farm has permanently between 350 and 450 steers for beef, from 6 to 18 months old.
The average weight at the slaughter age is between500 and 600 kg. There are also specimens which at the age of 18 months already had 690 kg.
Since 2012, we started to grow in greenhouses and in field: tomatoes, cucumbers, lettuce, radishes, eggplant, spring onions, dry onions carrots and strawberries. The greenhouses are spread across 1 ha and the vegetable crops in field are spread across 3 ha. In 2014 we associated with other farmers in the Longing for Taste Programme. We deliver during the season, in the southern Romania, in supermarkets and hypermarkets but also in grocers and small shops.
Currently, we cultivate over 3600 ha in the counties of Ialomita and Calarasi. We grow corn, wheat, barley, sun-flower, canola, alfalfa and triticales. Besides the food for our own animals, we sell annually between 21.000 and 25.000 tons of cereals and oilseeds.
We work with the best suppliers in the seeds, fertilizers and treatments field. We have modern equipment: Deutz, John Deere, Fendt, McCormick, Massey Ferguson tractors and also some Romanian machines: U650; Claas, Laverda, John Deere combines.
