My name is Efkan Fındık and I am one of the founders of the Fındıklar Farm. Our enterprise was founded through IPARD supports and the beneficiary is my son, Kaan Fındık Atalay. I have worked as a computer engineer in Germany. Later on I established a milk production facility 12 years ago. It has been 3 years since I left all other affairs and have been dealing only with this milk enterprise. Our new enterprise was set up thanks to IPARD supports; and my son Kaan is taking care of the business. We transferred the broods in our former enterprise to the new one. I visited the enterprises in Germany in order to find out the newest systems and wanted to set up a system that would run with the least workers as finding employee is quite difficult in animal breeding sector. The systems in our new enterprise are fully automatic and do not require labor force for feeding and milking. Next year the number of the animals in the enterprise will reach the full capacity and I will be able to turn to the marketing system. My primary objective is to install milk matics in supermarkets to sell fresh milk. Moreover I am searching for paging system to deliver milk to houses. Apart from me and my son, we have four employees and two of them are women. Our enterprise ranks in the top 10 in terms of robotic milking system utilization. We are the first enterprise using the automatic feeding system. I recommend the people asking my advice to pay attention to the financial burden and make the best of this opportunity.
