Dairy Farmer (Cosamooselot)

Adele Bain – Dairy Farmer (Cosamooselot)

by Adele Bain

They say every farm is different and even more so, every farmer. So what do you do when you move to a brand new farm which you have absolutely no knowledge about? That was us, four years ago when we decided

to buy a dairy farm – having zero knowledge, but a dream of a green and sustainable farm. And so our journey began.

For the untrained eye the traditional kikuyu and clovers looked beautiful and green. Little did we know that ryegrass and chicory was what we actually needed. Seems easy enough

to fix though, right? Wrong! After tons of testing, hours of intense analysing and what seemed like a lifetime later, we were finally ready… for some more restoration. The only thing that was truly ready from the beginning – our cattle’s genetics.

Thinking back on the process there are two people who truly carried us: Craig Galloway and Anele Madlala. From the beginning Craig inspired us with his sustainability ideas and passion. While Anele’s knowledge and fast thinking was quite critical during a lot of situations.

What felt like a few seconds after we took over the farm it was already time for our first Woodlands Dairy audit. What an extremely terrifying, teeth clenching moment! But man, what

a teaching moment. Control sheets and reports were drawn up for just about everything. Today we can finally and with confidence say that we’ve graduated “milk audit school”.

On a more serious note – more specifically the notes that go into your wallet – we had our fair share of trials and challenges. One of the best investments however was definitely

our sustainability projects. Without realising it back then when we started, by investing in sustainability we were preparing a safety net for when the drought came. And boy did it come for us all. It’s safe to

say that everyone struggled with water and that a farm can never
have “enough” water, however by participating in our sustainability project from the beginning we taught and trained ourselves to get everything done with as little water possible. Even in the difficult times, our fields’ capacity increased with 25%, we saved on medicine because of good hygiene and we were able to ensure quality milk.

To top it all, we are so lucky to walk this journey, hand in hand with one of the best dairy producers in the country – who always encourage
and inspire better systems, new technology, and being as green as possible. Thank you Woodlands Dairy, every single one of you, for having our backs and teaching us one step at a time! We are – and always will be – proud producers!

Woodlands Dairy Milk Standard is:

Woodlands Dairy Milk Standard is:

Measuring wellbeing of farm workers.

  • All farm employees are employed according to The Basic Conditions of employment, such as;
    • Registered for SDL / UIF / WC / PAYE
    • Working hours / Over time etc.
    • Leave – annual / sick / maternity etc.
    • Remuneration according to sectorial determination.
    • Disciplinary procedures and records thereof.
  • Health and Safety of farm employees are taken care of.
  • Proper built housing facilities are provided to all farm employees, with basic facilities such as clean drinking water, electricity and ablution facilities

Measuring welfare of animals on the farms.

To ensure Good Dairy Farming Practices are implemented on all the dairy farms, the guidance from the Food and Agriculture Organization(FAO) of the United Nations ; 2011, is used to measure the welfare of all dairy animals against the five freedoms, namely;

  • Freedom from thirst, hunger and malnutrition
  • Freedom from discomfort
  • Freedom from pain, injury and disease
  • Freedom from fear
  • Freedom to engage in relatively normal patterns of animal behavior.

Thus all animals are well fed and sufficient drinking water provided. Calves are properly housed and monitored continuously. They are well fed, protected from adverse weather conditions, inoculated against diseases and have normal animal behaviour.

The buildings and handling facilities are safe for animals, where they are handled and milked, with non-slip flooring surfaces and enough ventilation. All animals are monitored daily and any illnesses are identified early and treated accordingly.

Health management programs are in place to prevent illnesses and to detect any lameness or illness early. No mistreatment of animals are allowed such as whipping or prodding. During milking periods animals are fed to provide a relaxed atmosphere.

Competent animal husbandry skills are ensured through proper training and experienced handlers are allowed to handle the dairy cows.

All dairy cows are kept on pastures for more than 70% of their time, to feed and move normally about, to allow for normal animal behaviour.

Measuring compliance to legal, regulative and industry requirements.

All of our dairy farms’  facilities are visited on a regular basis to evaluated them against pre-defined criteria, prescribed by legislation and  regulations applicable on these facilities.

The Dairy Standard Agency of South Africa’s “Code of Practice” is used as the backbone to evaluate the facilities against.

As already mentioned all producer farms are surveyed and graded according to their compliance.
