One component of the project is dedicated to the diffusion of silage conservation practices. According to Julio Cesar Hernandez Grisales, milk producer in the municipality of Sonson, forage conservation in the form of silage has reduced milk production costs by letting him store food for four or five months. 'Silage conservation makes us more efficient, increasing feed supply during the dry season', says Francisco Restrepo Restrepo, another participant in the project.
Another component helps livestock companies specialised in the production of milk improving their administrative management practices. Luz Dary Perez Nareña is a milk producer who has benefitted from software for the management of production costs, provided by the programme: 'The software is very easy to use', says Luz. 'Thanks to it, we can control how expensive it is for us to produce a litre of milk and we understand how to be more efficient.'
