NutritionOptimum feeding management strategy should provide the proper amount and balance of feedstuffs and nutrient to all cows at the correct time to achieve high productivity and efficiency, optimum cow health and reproduction, and maximum profitability. The goal in any dairy project is to produce high milk yield very efficiently. To achieve this goal, we must fully control the production, and the best way to for doing it is by planning an intensive confined dairy farm, using the most advanced technologies exists in the industry. The objective of feeding management is to achieve and maintain high milk production is to maintain a proper balance of nutrients which minimizes fluctuations in the rumen, maximizes digestion, and ensures a steady flow of nutrients to the udder. Dairy cows eat 10-13 meals per day averaging about 20 min per meal when fed ad libitum (means free access to feed all day). If diets are balances nutritionally, this eating behavior provides relatively constant supply of nutrients to rumen. A properly balanced totally mixed ration (TMR) is a feeding method which helps achieve this goal. See More...
GeneticsIn the past decade, we have witnessed some amazing developments in the field of animal genetics. Extensive research, experimentation, and observation have led to a significant improvement in the breeds of dairy cattle, meat cattle and many other mixed breeds around the globe. Research shows that the Holstein breed produces the largest quantities of milk. This breed is known to have a number of sub-breeds and sub- characteristics in different places worldwide. Israel is known for having high rates of success in nurturing Holstein cows to increase milk production. The average milk volume per cow is one of the highest in the world. Milkey is working in close collaboration with “SION”, a leading Israeli company specializing in cow genetics. See More...
TechnologyThere are many dairy farming technologies to choose from in Israel and worldwide.The first stage of planning should take into account a number of key parameters in order to decide which technology is most suitable for your needs.Some of the parameters we examine are:
- Milk quantity per cow
- Mobile or stationary milking parlor
- Cow breed
- Number of employees, availability and salary costs
- Technician availability
- Which cow gives birth to mostly female cows
- Which cow conceives the fastest
- Identification: rumination, health issues, ovulation
- Weight, height
- Which cow provides higher amounts of solids such as protein and fat
Health & VeterinaryGood health and fertility are essential for the sustainability and economic efficiency of the dairy herd. Adopting standard herd health protocols will often miss the unique situation of the individual herd and will many times fail or have suboptimal economic performance. Our team offer tailor made production medicine protocols that include the following main areas:
- Analysis of main health and fertility problem areas
- Developing herd specific vaccination programs
- Biosecurity measurements protocols
- Recommended replacement programs (heifer raising programs)
- Management of internal and external parasites burden
- Evaluation and design of treatment protocols in key health issues
- Farm specific breeding program tailored to personnel and equipment availabilities
- Design of Udder Health preventive, treatment and management protocols
- Optimal usage of local laboratories and if needed the use of specific foreign laboratories
- Training of local farm personnel to cover key areas of possible improvement
- Maximizing the benefit of using herd management programs
- Monitoring and evaluating the implementation efficacy of the above developed protocols
Zero Grazing Cow ShedsWe accommodate our cows in an ergonomic and comfortable growing environment.
The cowshed functions as a closed and safe environment for the cows, giving protection from rain and sufficient shade. The structure is highly ventilated and made out of galvanized steel covered with shaded polyethylene. The feeding is done inside the greenhouse which is located close to the milking parlor, allowing a short walking distance for the cows. See More...
ProcessingAfter extracting the milk from the cow, the first stage, it is recommended to move on to the second and final stage-processing.Some examples for processing can be: yogurt, soft cheese, hard cheese, butter, ice cream and more.Our base of knowledge is composed of a wide network of professionals in the field of milk processing. We can provide you with best, most relevant information you need in order to create a successful business model.Finally, we supply all the equipment you need following any professional advice in addition to the consultation which accompanies you throughout the process.
Dairy Farm Master PlanThe master plan sets out the characteristics and facilities of the dairy farm. It specifies the framework for the project, and serves as a basis for discussions, design decisions and for future development. The master plan consists of a general description and plans for the dairy in sufficient detail for an understanding of the project, but not in sufficient detail to build it.
The master plan also provides the basis for a preliminary analysis of the cost of the project.
