"Modern approaches to dairy farming help us to prove leadership on industrial milk market in Ukraine. We invest in genetics and healthy headcount, well-balanced feed production and comfortable placement, getting high-quality milk in return. Despite challenging pricing, we see the potential of this business segment in terms of efficiency growth," comments Mykhailo Travetskiy, Head of Dairy Farming Division.
