Project summary: 

The family farm Juhart recognised a market opportunity and decided to increase production capacity for breeding turkeys as an alternative to the cattle breeding that was traditionally the primary source of income. The project constructed a new poultry house with two tower silos and a water tank for collection of rainwater.

Project results: 

The investment increased overall production capacity 2.3 times, enabling 20 600 turkeys to be bred annually.

The income increased and jobs on the farm have been secured.

The new water tank contributed to the more effective use of rainwater and thus savings in production costs.The investment increased overall production capacity 2.3 times, enabling 20 600 turkeys to be bred annually.
