Our Dairy Farm

The farm began with a herd of 3,500 milking cows. The plan is to grow this to number to 25,000 by 2026. There are a total of 15 sheds that maintain a temperature of 25 degrees through a cooling system. Holstein cows can produce up to 30 litres of raw fresh milk per day. Mazoon ensures that it follows the highest standards of animal welfare in the Middle East to ensure that the cows are healthy, well-fed and well-cared for. In addition, a milking parlour records yields, milking time, peak milk flow and milking duration for every cow four times a day to ensure a steady supply of fresh milk.

Animal welfare will be the utmost priority for Mazoon Dairy, and we are investing in advanced cow cooling systems that regulate indoor temperatures, along with a number of other facilities to ensure that the herd is stress free. All animals will be housed on sand bedding and have access to veterinary staff round-the-clock. Transponders fitted around their necks will also monitor eating and sleeping patterns to ensure that the herd is comfortable at all times. We have also invested in a state-of-the-art ration program and visits from a world-renowned cow nutritionist to ensure that the herd is healthy and productive.

Mazoon Dairy chose As’Sunainah for its dairy farm and factory because the region has a low Temperature Humidity Index, which is better suited for the cows. The sand dunes in this area create a soft bedding for the cows, making it very comfortable to host a herd of this size. The strategic location of As’Sunainah, given its proximity to both local and GCC markets, makes it an ideal location for the dairy farm and factory. Additionally, the water reserve is sustainable for another 25 years and provides for the entire site and its requirements.
