How to choose profitable technologies for milk production business?

The technological revolution invaded various spheres of mankind, changing the way activities were carried out even then. In the age of communications, with information technology, it is possible to observe an increasingly connected society, connected to the Internet 24 hours a day.

It’s no different in agribusiness, technology integration is increasingly present in the field. In the dairy business, this is indeed possible Research dairy farms that use technological practices. In 2013, for example, the first automated milking system was opened in Brazil. Since then, nearly 10 years later, the use of technology – although not a reality for all real estate – has increased since then. Management, milking until fertilization of the herd.

to Carlos Eduardo Carvalhoan agronomist who graduated in 2005 from the Federal University of São Carlos and co-founder and technical director of Cooperideal, The application of technology in the characteristics is essential The dairy farm is allowed to stay or remain in business.

“If a person does not apply technology and does not add productive factors to the profitable health of the property, he is unlikely to remain in this field. It is necessary to move forward, regardless of the production system used within the property. The cost of land, equipment, operating costs and prices increases. And the price of the milk product in Recent years have not followed this evolution in production costs, both fixed and variable, as analyzed by Carlos Eduardo.

In this context, for an agronomist, technology is the only way to add margin within the company to continue the activity. “You have to apply technology looking for productivity per animal and per hectare worked.”

However, the choice of technology applied to the property is fundamental, since the specifics of each farm must be considered. for oak, There are two basic criteria that must be evaluated In this choice: Ability to pay and time need of technical application. “This is perhaps one of the biggest problems of the dairy business: determining the need at that moment to apply a certain technology and obviously pushing the product. Often, due to a lack of management on the farm, the numbers are not clear for the producer to make that kind of decision.”

Once both criteria are well defined, Carvalho noted, “producers can reap the rewards of installing some innovative equipment or implementing some protocols on the farm, allowing things to really happen.”

Carlos Eduardo Carvalho will speak at Session 5 of Interleite Brasil 2022, which will take place for the first time in Goiânia, on August 3 and 4. “At Interleite, we will have the opportunity to showcase Cooperideal-assisted real estate cases across Brazil, in order to present how these properties can apply different forms of technology in business, taking into account the factors mentioned above,” Carlos said.
