Bles Dairies is involved in interim farm management for a dairy farm start-up in Heilongjiang, China.
The special feature of this farm is being organic. For complying with organic certification, the farm has to grow a large part of its own protein requirement. For this reason, the farm is growing annual grasses next to the usual corn silage. Organic fertilizing is used and the grass looks perfect. Next year, own fermented manure after biogas production will be used and that gives even better results. The idea is closed circle farming as much as possible.
The first heifers will start calving in November. Dutch veterinarians are involved in training the calving crew. We will keep you updated.
