  4. 4. More than 30 years of innovation• World leader since 1977• The first milk meter and pedometer more than 30 years ago• Advanced farming solutions• More than 10,000 with afi systems• Six million pedometers• In 52 countries over 5 continents
  5. 5. The Israeli DairyIndustrySome facts:• 1.27B milk per year• 117,000 cows – 990 farms• Production per cow= 11,500 kg.• 7.8m inhabitants• Consumption per capita= 230 liters
  6. 6. Professional solution for establishing a competitive, profitable dairy farm
  7. 7. Dairy farm – project process Master Plan (frame work) Feasibility/Business plan Planning & detailed architectural design Licensing & authorizations Production of equipment & transportation Animal sourcing Projection, building & system running (TK) Training of local staff On-going support 7
  8. 8. Fertility & Welfare Milking Barn Concept by Afimilk
  9. 9. Welfare – Happy Cows Produce More
  10. 10. General• Africa is considered as an growth market for dairy production• The dairy market is huge, yet complex• The need for change is clear, but in which direction?• What is THE “product” suitable for this kind of farming• The solution should combine the needs & possibilities of the market players (Win/Win situation)
  11. 11. Background• 75 % of herds have 2-10 animals on average• Very low productivity, around 1000 kg/year/cow (world average 2038 kg/year)• Low genetic potential & poor nutrition• Increasing demand for milk quality & quantity• Allocation of funds for rural development• There is a trend of incorporating small farms into bigger units (global trend)• Processing plants, Cooperatives & Unions play a crucial part in the sector’s development
  12. 12. Objectives• Affordable & viable solution for rural dairy farming• Possibility to incorporate several farmers into one advanced barn• Improve milk productivity of the local cattle• Improve welfare (husbandry conditions) of the local cattle• Improve milk quality and hygiene parameters to meet high processing & consumers standards• Expose the farmers to computerized systems
  13. 13. Professional constraints• Huge number of cows are kept in poor environmental conditions:  Tied up in one place,  Suffer insufficient feed and water supply,  Suffer heat stress,  Insufficient health control• The above mentioned, results in very poor fertility• Milk collection method causes fast deterioration of milk quality
  14. 14. Rural Dairy Farming
  15. 15. Human Constraints• Farmers are reluctant to accept initiatives for few main reasons:  They regard their cows as an asset (guaranty for “rainy” days to come…)  Built-in suspicion, they don’t trust others  Unclear or “intimidating” solutions  They don’t understand the benefits  They are scared of the need to invest, or lack possibility for accessing loans
  16. 16. Main ConceptModern “All included” barn which will provide adequate cows’ welfareconditions, adapted to farms with up to 100 cows with a vision to future development
  17. 17. Welfare & Fertility Milking Barn• Roofed Loose Barn (“Israeli type”)• Mechanized milking system with individual AfiMilk milk measurement• Built-in Heat detection (AfiAct) & welfare monitoring system• Cooling tank for milk storage• Cow cooling system at the feed alley• AfiFarm herd management & analysis SW• Connectivity to HQ and monitoring system (AfiFarm Net)

  25. 25. Unique Management Platform• Online web-based management system for multiple dairy farms in different locations• Allows data access extracted from a number of farms from anywhere at any time• Benchmarking and monitoring Herds Performance• Management level reports & graphs• User friendly and intuitive interface• On line consultancy from afimilk HQ
  26. 26. Economic Calculations Guidelines• Average production increase of 8.0 liters per cow, during 1st year of operation, mainly due to enhanced welfare, fertility & modern milking• Price per liter increased to due to improved quality & quantity• Feed cost will increase due to production increase• Labor cost will decrease due to advanced technology• Other costs will increase due to extra attention• Increased income can be considered as marginal profit
  27. 27. Additional Economic Comprehensions• The price per liter of milk is expected to rise in the near future• The value to the processing plants is in fact higher as quality milk is supposed to be processed into high value Premium products• Productivity will increase further during next 4-5 years• Initial investment should decrease considering mass production
  28. 28. Additional Options• The conceptual design will consider future expansions• Adapted TMR feed preparation based on silage• Forced ventilation in the bedded area• Higher capacity milking parlor• Renewable Energy (manure treatment, compost, Bio-Gas, Solar energy etc.)• Training centers and professional consultancy
  29. 29. Professional Services• Herd health protocols• Field crops and nutritional consultancy• Management tools• Breeding and genetic techniques• Lowering heat stress• Seminars and training on different levels• Knowledge transfer
