State of the art dairy farm in Uruguay with 13,000 milking cows and self-generating power

This post is also available in: English

A state-of-the-art dairy farm with 13,000 milking cows exporting powder milk created more than 300 qualified jobs and generated its own energy from the animals’ dung in Durazno, Uruguay.

It costs over 160 million US dollars and belongs to Argentine tycoon Alejandro Bulgheroni, who has been investing heavily in Uruguay. He also owns olive plantations, vineyards and a winery with his brand name.

Oscar Ianni and Alessandro Martelli from Estancias del Lago, as the dairy farm is named, said the preliminary operation and infrastructure were completed in April 2013 when “they started milking the first 250 cows. By April 2018 they had 13,000 milking cows in full production”.

“They have the bio-digesters in operation with the cows’ dung, generating sufficient methane to impulse thermal energy”, said Ianni.

On the 37,000 hectares, the dairy farm produces a little over 20,000 tonnes of milk powder.
