Harm-Jan van der Beek head of «Uniform-Agri»: «Cow has always been my favorite animal, so I know how to help farmers»
To bring together all information on livestock farmer should not be at stack of papers, as they were replaced by special computer programs. Uniform-Agri Company is one of the world leader, that develops and supports management systems for dairy farmers all over the world.
In the last year’s August edition of our magazine, we talked about the dairy complex JV «Promin» in Mykolayiv. Then here the new milking perlour was only begining to build: a concrete foundation was ready and metal frame was fitted. Alexander Ostapenko, director of the fsrm, noticed the uniqueness of the milking equipment and promised to invite us, as soon as all would work. He kept his word.
During Agroinvesforum, about which we have already mentioned in the journal materials, I asked Vadim Andrushchak, director of «Potinger Ukraine», about investment sentiment which now prevails in the market. Planned for a few minutes short interview quietly grown into a large and deep conversation, by which I was very impressed. I hope that the reader will not remain indifferent.
Independent Ukraine has set its sights on the industrial production of milk at the beginning of 2000. The starting point for many was a model farm and dairy holding school «Agro-Soyuz». Over time, new technologies have begun to take root in other Ukrainian farms. While some step by step moved forward, others argued, thought if to build or reconstruct, new farm — Ukrainian Milk Company (UMC) — quickly rushed in the history.
2015, the year of the Goat, is very symbolic. It can be considered as the year of birth of professional goat breeding in Ukraine.
This farm is with its own character and its own way of development. They didn’t set a goal to run a race with others, competing for the highest yield, one of the main tasks was to care about animal health and milk quality. It is «Vitchyzna».
Probably every milkman once in his life thought about their own processing. However, not everyone dares to take this step. The chairman of the Board of JSC «Plemzavod „Stepnoi “» Anatoly Volkov desired to deal with it for a long time.
