WHAT WE WILL DO
We aim to operate a dairy farm in Panamá. Implementing existing European technologies and North American output farming practices to become the most efficient milk producer in the region. The plan is to buy 175 hectare working farm with 150 milking cows in the Bouquete district of Panamá The climate and conditions align themselves perfectly with productive and modern farming practices, the region has experienced an increase in hydroponic greenhouse and arable crop farming.
Our project involves increasing the existing herd size increasing from 150 to 5000 cows in 5 years implementing modern farming practices to increase daily yields per cow from 17 to 35 litres of milk. moreover, we seek to implement sophisticated nutrition analysis and feed monitoring allowing each cow to have a personalised diets led by her specific nutritional requirements that cover her own maintinance and growth
we will bring a new standard to animal husbandry, at San Bonani Farm the welfare of the animals will be of are utmost highest priority catering from both their health needs and dietary needs.
land will be redeveloped and reseeded increasing digestibility of new pastures along with high protein crops and meal substitutes. all cows will be allocated a monitoring caller (cow monitor) this will help with assessing the cows condition if it is eating ok feeding ok walking and daily movements are fine. if there are irregular activities detected with the animal an allert text and email is sent to the herd manager that will then review the animal before any illnesses escalate
SAN BONANI FARM COWS
at San Bonani Farm,
the cows health and well being will be of the highest priority making sure that there quality and comfort are maintained to a high standard at all times. how do we accomplish this?
cows when born or purchased to the farm will be given a cow monitor this is to help monitor its health movements and intakes weigh and daily production yields. this allows us to resolve any issues early in its stages before a cow can develop any form of illness or lameness and allows us to calibrate its dietary needs thru-out its lactation.
we will regenerate are future herd with a high quality breed that will be imported internationally from a quality high breeding stock thru embryo transplantation. this is to allow the rejuvenation of in-country blood stock and reinforce herd traceability.
crops that will be grown on the farm will be utilized to form the dietary requirements for the farms residents. we will utilize different practices and different crops to support all animal requirements.
this will be achieved thru a team of experts along with monitoring sensors and automated irrigation equipment and crop data scanning that will monitor crop establishment, crop growths applications to support the different crop growths right up to harvest, fermentation, drying and storage.
SATISFYING DIETARY NEEDS
all crops grown will be grown to a high standard utilizing precision agriculture practices to the most out of every inch ensuring bumper harvests while at the same time reducing wastage and cost at every opportunity. from controlled traffic management, crop rotation utilizing farm waste to maintain strong organic matter in the soil we stay ahead of the competition.
STANDING OUT ABOVE THE REST
ROBOTIC NUTRITION FEEDERS
we will utilize robotic feeders to help sustain a healthy appetite and maintain a fresh feed at ease of reach at all times. these robots will be installed from year 2 until year 5 to support the development of the project and too support the development of the herds nutritional needs
these robots allows the cow to decide the time when milking is carried out thus allowing yields to be increased along with milking with average milking intervals being 2.65 daily average. we can monitor milk yields milk quality and weigh and diet plan of every cow on farm.
the care of the cows is paramount to the farms protocols. the hygeine standards of the cow sheds will be kept to a very high standard robotic cleaners will work 24 hours a day maintaining the sheds clean and reducing the possibilites of any infections.
zero grazing will be done on the farm to allow a desert substitute along with the T.M.R mix ration this given in the form of a booster feed and treat.
being able to understand the needs and requirements of the soil is just as important as understanding the requirements of the animals that we provide for. that is why with a combined experience of over 40 years in crop management and grassland management that why we progress above are competition in farming practices and practices that are utilized the world over to gain higher yields and high protein feeds. all land can be farmed when given to the right farmer.
as we will be utilizing variable strategies to reduce chemical applications from crop rotations to organic matter reinforcing thru applications or both liquid and solid applications manure thru pre pre cultivation and post emergence crops. liquid applications will be carried out via direct injection or dribble are system to accomplish an even application and reduce odors of surrounding areas.
SAN BONANI FARM ENGINEERING DIVISION
heart of the operation
WORKSHOP AND FABRICATION
San Bonani farm engineering division, is one of the pinnacle part of any farming operation, responsible for all on farm repairs, fabrication, and construction projects, the are responsible for keeping everything like a well coordinated bee hive with highly skilled engineers shadowed by skilled welders mechanics electricians and builders to name just a few this allows use to take control of are projects and expansion phases allowing us to stay 2 steps ahead of any problem with scheduled maintenance protocols and minimizing breakdowns
OUR MISSION IS TO DEVELOP A MODERN AND SUSTAINABLE AGRICULTURE IN PANAMA
The mission of San Bonani Farm is to support the agricultural industry to develop modernize and turn the tide from loss to profit we are currently in the process of obtaining funding to establish a farm.
GRASSLAND, CROP MANAGEMENT AND ESTATE MAINTENANCE
At San Bonani Farm we will covert fields and land that has been abandoned and left uncultivated of maintained used as grazing land lacking organic matter. we will take this land that will be leased over a 5-10 year period and will be completely transformed, we will excavate drainage canals to relieve water build up during rainy periods, subsoil to relieve compaction and allow water filtration and natural draining, level distorted hills and hollow areas this will reduce flooding and water deposit build up in cropping areas, underground drainage piping, overgrowth removal all to return a revitalised growing area ready for what ever weather conditions are thrown at it.
as when we purchase or lease any agricultural grounds the transformation will will reflect all areas from fencing to ditches and entrance areas. all being maintained to a high standard that the farm holds. as we will be working on public roads it is vital that we carry out activates to reduce visibility and increase public safety
