Livestock Breeding Operations

Kayseri / Develi

The facilities based in Develi, Kayseri contain modern cattle sheds with semi-open milking stations, delivery room, newborn unit, calf rearing areas, yearling paddocks, milking stations and fodder storages.

There are currently a total of 5.000 cattle together with 1.600 dairy cattle consisting of Holstein cattle species at the Livestock Dairy Cattle Breeding operations with an installed capacity of 6.000 cattle. Pregnancy is created by artificial insemination method in our herd so as to increase the average milk yield per animal and to maintain and improve herd genetics.

The herd management program is applied at the facility, which has semi-open and open system animal shelters. All animal movements, productivity statuses and veterinary practices are monitored and checked via computer programs within the herd management system.


Milking cows are housed in semi-open sheds with free stops. All of the female animals in the operation are fitted with magnetic sensors. In this way; the periods of heat (desire for mating) and animal movements can be monitored and herd management practices can be performed based on this data.

Calf Rearing

Calf Feeding System and igloos

At Saray Ciftligi (the Saray Farm) adopting the principle of “Quality of milk and meat is directly related with the proper dietary needs and appropriate feeding system used for the calves”, modern methods are employed to feed the calves, with a particular attention paid to the rearing of calves.

Among these applications, calf movements and feed consumption habits are controlled with computer and monitored daily. Calf feeding is done automatically by means of computer-aided machines.


Male and female animals shelter in the same group until they are 6 months’ old and after they get 6 months’ old, they are taken to separate living space by their genders. Artificial insemination of the females starts only after they get 14 months’ old.

Milking Stations/Parlours

Milking is performed in two different milking parlours capable of milking 128 cows simultaneously, which have the fastest milking speed in Turkey, modernised with Afimilk herd management system, one the parlours is 40 x 2 and the other is 24 x 2. Milking parlours are composed of stop-sections operate independently from each other.


It was our facility that used AfiLab, a cutting-edge online milk analyses device ever invented in the world, in the milking parlors equipped with SAC milking machine and Afimilk herd management system, for the first time in Turkey.

By means of this device, the milk of the milked animals is analyzed in each milk and it can be examined individually in terms of fat, protein, lactose, urea values, somatic cell number and ketone body.
