Training is held in three professional spheres: agriculturer, livestock expert, and a machine operator. A part of master classes was common for all specialists. Experts told how to choose the most advantageous for a stock farm feeds, to reduce product cost due to a proper diet, and how to improve profitability of the farm. In addition, the participants learnt special features of the in-line haylage conservation technology (filmed haylage). It allows farmers to overcome difficulties and drawbacks of the traditional system. Even in wet weather it is possible to conserve and preserve high-quality preservative-free grass forage.
In addition, the participants worked in sections. Agriculturers studied organization of a forage resource conveyor and special features of different grass species. Livestock experts were explained a process of feed formulation, feeding technique with use of haylage, and prevention of disturbances of metabolism of cattle. Machine operators learnt operational features of forage conservation machinery manufactured by KRMZ: baler, high-speed bale wrapper, and roll cutting machine.
"In our country the dairy field faces two essential tasks: increase in milk yields and reduction of diet cost. To achieve this goal it is required to advance professional competences of farm employees", Dmitry Teplov, Director of Krasnokamsk Machinery and Repair Plant, noted. "A lot of employees of cattle breeding companies graduated from educational institutions decades ago. For this time new technologies appeared, scientists have made discoveries, some views on the cattle diet suffered major changes. Objective of our courses is to make the specialists aware of the latest trends and to enable them to achieve maximum efficiency on their work area. Experts presented two versions of cattle diet depending on target yields: 7 and 9 thousand liters of milk per year".
