Integration between Agriculture and Livestock to Preserve the Environmental Resources
Juhayna planted the land with green feed that integrates livestock and agricultural production, where high-quality green feed and corn are planted, grown, and converted into silage as a food source for animals. On the other hand, agricultural farming also benefits from natural fertilization, the barns are being washed, the water is transferred to a large lake where the deposition of solid materials (fertilizer) to be relocated to agriculture.
Accordingly, it reduces both; the use of industrial fertilizer and the cost of agriculture along with providing a greater chance for environment conservation.
Sprinklers to Maximize Cows’ Dairy Productivity
Juhayna has applied an innovative cooling system (sprinklers) to face the regional climate, high temperatures, and low humidity levels through the placement of water fans that are big in size and energy, with pumps to spray water on the cows to cool them. This innovative cooling system ensures high productivity and plays a great role in stabilizing production rates in summer and winter.
The Best Cow Breeds Around the World
Juhayna was very keen to select the best breeds of livestock, in which the company imported the Friesian Holstein. In addition to the Simmental breed that has a dual-purpose for dairy production and meat production and has a great ability to endure tough environmental conditions.
A Highly Efficient Rotating Milking Parlor to Monitor Cows Health
The company has chosen a state of the art rotating milking parlor where automatic registration takes place. It uses 80 milking points for each of the four phases, in order to achieve the highest possible milking efficiency.
In addition to milking about 450 cows per hour followed by a giant cooling system that can cool 10 thousand liters of milk per hour to be loaded directly into the company’s equipped cars and delivered to Juhayna’s factories.
An Advanced Laboratory to Ensure the Production Disease Free Feed and Dairy
Juhayna’s farm has been supported by an advanced laboratory to analyze the food provided to the cows and the milk produced to determine its quality, the number of bacteria in each millimeter, as well as the examination of diseases that might affect cows to be able to be fully aware of the possible treatments and the appropriate immunizations that could be used for the cows.
An Exceptional Solar Energy Station
The Opening of the solar energy station is considered as one of the milestones of the company, where it is the first station to sell electricity to the private sector through a close cooperation between Juhayna and Karm Solar for solar energy with a capacity of 1 MW.
The station is the first of its kind in Egypt, knowing that the project is fully operating by solar energy for the preservation of the environment and for the desire to come up with an integrated Egyptian project that not only focuses on the company’s needs but also on the ambitious plan of the country and encourages the investments, aiming to bridge the gap in issues related to raw milk.
