>Afimilk - Animal Health Monitoring
Modern dairies view the individual cow as a "production unit". This approach demands close observation of animal health and welfare. The Afimilk system provides a full range of data, which helps farm managers follow their animals, monitor and even predict health problems.
We will be visiting Cooperative Dairy farm at Kibbutz Afikim.
Feed Mill - Givat Yoav Feed Center manufactures and supplies T.M.R. (Total Mixed Ration) for dairy cows, dry cows and heifers.
Cattle-raising in the Golan Heights
An excellent cattle-raising in the Golan Heights, where Brahama, Hereford, Sharol'e and Simntal are some of the imported breeds raised. Here, hybrid species were developed and adapted to Israeli conditions. The growth in beef cattle-raising in Israel is still relatively small compared to that of dairy cattle. This is due mainly to low fresh beef consumption and limited grazing area.
Fertility management – Sion Israel
Visit in the farm with insemination expert - demonstration of Heifers insemination and explanations about the Israeli method.
Organic Dairy Farm
Visit to Kibbutz "Harduf" in Galilee area - a cooperative organic Dairy farm.
