We are an integrated company, which allows us to control and guarantee everything about all our dairy products, starting with grains, oilseeds and hay grown on 3,500 ha, which represent 90% of our cows’ feed.
In fact, we started off in 1994 when we founded the 100% Romanian company AGROSERV MĂRIUȚA. Then, we started to cultivate fields, and in 2005 we set up one of the largest dairy farms in Romania. We have been supplying raw, bulk milk for over 10 years to large processing factories in Romania and, most recently, Bulgaria.
Today, we have approximately 2,500 animals, of which 1,000 are milking cows. Our cows are pure pedigree (Holstein Friesian), and we raise them free stall. This means that they live free and untied at the farm, in semi-open shelters. So no, we cannot show pictures of incredibly green pastures! But we know how much care we take of our animals and that our feeding makes it possible to deliver the most delicious milk.
We rely on current animal-care principles based on prevention and on an excellent team of three veterinarians and a veterinary technician who ensure that the cows’ milk is always coming from healthy cows. Are you familiar with the old saying “if fat then beautiful”? Indeed, we need specialists for this, including a nutritionist who ensures that our animals have a balanced intake of carbohydrates, proteins and lipids, corresponding to the season and the age of each animal.
