Welcome To HapCo.farm!

The HapCo.farm concept is an industrial dairy farm model with a positive influence on People-Planet-Profit, focused on animal welfare to help to start industrialisation of countries in transition. The goal is to link animal health and animal welfare to financial profits with respect to the ecosystems and to provide life quality for the local people and country.

 

About Us

Our Story

The name ‘HapCo.farm‘ is a composition of ‘happy’ and ‘cow’, which reflects the vision behind the concept. It’s a management concept for dairy farms, based on the view that a livestock farm simply works better when the animals are physically and mentally healthy. The concept takes a number of physiological and ethological needs of dairy cattle into account, such as adequate rest, custom cubicles in a freestall and sufficient exercise. These aspects are integrated into a realizable and profitable corporate structure. The main focus of this concept is the use of small production groups and the intensive survey of the animals.
