Addcon Academy A-Rehu Oy Finland

09/24/19

In the beginning of September, we had the pleasure to host a 3-days Addcon Academy for our new Finnish partner A-Rehu Oy with a group of 22 attendees.

The initiative to organize such journey came from them as they have many new employees who needed to be integrated and to learn about milk production outside Finland.

The structural development in Finnish dairy farm sector is very fast at the moment. The number of producers is decreasing by up to 10% annually without decrease in produced volumes. This means very fast growth in the average size of farms. The farmers will meet totally new challenges. They need to quickly adapt their management, employ workers often for the first time, build new barns, group animals, acquire new technology to feeding and milking etc.

People from Addcon marketing and German sales force had organized five excellent farms to be visited. We had an opportunity to meet and listen to really professional farm managers, to see fully automated feeding, robotic milking and other new investments done on those farms. Luckily we also were visiting the farms during corn silage harvesting. Seeing those large silos surrounded by wide and clean asphalt areas was instructive. All in all, very well selected farms!

As A-Rehu Oy is our new distributor in both Kofasil and GrasAAT silage additives we took the opportunity to spend one day at our HQ in Bitterfeld telling latest news of the company and sharing some important knowledge of the silage making with our products. Our clients got a nice overview of the products they represent and got convinced about high standards in quality and knowledge.
