The State of Israel along with MASHAV, Israel’s Agency for International Development Cooperation Ministry of Foreign Affairs and CINADCO, Center for International Agricultural Development Cooperation Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development will host an international course in Intensive Dairy Cattle Production.

The seminar aims to share with the participants the structure and organization of the dairy sector in Israel. It will teach the participants the policies and strategies that drive their development and the management of intensive production systems. It will also introduce the participants to supporting institutions and applied technologies, and help them to create a framework for discussion and analysis of criteria for evaluating adaptation of that technology and management.


The main topics that will be covered in this course are, herd management, nutrition and feed production, genetic and selection principles, Reproduction and artificial insemination, Animal and udder health, Milk quality, Metabolic Diseases, Economics of production, research and development, dairy farm infrastructures, heat stress, management of calf and replacement heifers, forage preservation, evaluation and utilization and milking management and milking parlors


The dairy sector of Israel is characterized by farms with a healthy herd, which produces high milk quality (approximately 12,000 liters milk per lactation). This is due to an intense program promoting genetic improvements based on the findings of a comprehensive database. In addition to genetic innovation, other factors include: sophisticated production planning, the incorporation of technologies for the management and control of heat stress, along with comprehensive health programs.


Israel’s successful dairy industry is constantly upgrading technologies in order to respond to fast changing conditions and to bring to market a wide and varied range of high quality dairy products.
