ForFarmers and Garant-Tiernahrung to join forces

26 January 2016

ForFarmers and Garant Tiernahrung from Austria have decided to join forces within the “automatic milking systems” (AMS) segment. ForFarmers Germany will be supporting Garant Tiernahrung GmbH from January 2016 for a three year period with developing a leading position within the AMS segment in the Austrian market.

The key points of this collaboration are, on the one hand, the training of milk robot specialists, both from a theoretical as well as a practical point of view, as well as using the robot analysis programme on the other hand. Agreements have also been entered into regarding the offering of support during the organisation of AMS workshops and the visiting of robot companies in Germany and the Netherlands.

Garant will supply Austrian farmers with safe and customised feeds, “made in Austria”. As a compound feed producer, Garant Tiernahrung GmbH and the license partners in Carinthia, Salzburg and Tyrol will ensure the whole of Austria will be supplied with compound feeds from the cooperative agricultural sector. Garant is the market leader in Austria in the compound feed sector, with annual sales of more than 500.000 tons.

ForFarmers is proud of the fact their AMS specialists have also built up an excellent reputation outside of the country’s borders. Learning experiences are acquired by sharing knowledge, which in turn will lead to a further increase in both parties’ available knowledge.
