Project summary: 

Michaela Hlubková is a young farmer who breeds high yielding dairy goats. In order to make her farm business more competitive, she decided to include complementary activities in the farm’s business plan to fuel further development of the farm. Support from the Czech Rural Development Programme enabled the conversion of a farm building to a micro-dairy processing unit. She used the funds to purchase equipment and the breeding rights of the nucleus herd to ensure quality genetic material in the future. 

Project results: 

Production increased by 100 % and the quality of the processed milk also improved. This has led to increased sales. 
The dairy received International Featured Standards (IFS) Certification on 4 December 2018. 
The farm is now the third largest processor of sheep and goat milk in the Czech Republic in volume of production.
