What our customers say about their experience with the Israeli Dairy School
“Israel is done and dusted! What an amazing place! Such a unique country.. it has some big challenges, but in a way that’s what has helped their agriculture become so successful in the face of issues such as water. Never thought I’d see bananas in the Middle East, or that I’d be driving through the West Bank and looking over the border to Syria. The culture and history (especially in Jerusalem) is unbelievable. The mix of people and religions is even more than I expected, all generally very nice people. Have loved every moment of it!”

“Thank you Ofier for organizing a great visit for us. I really recommend The Dairy School if anybody wants to learn about Israeli milkproduction, dairy management, nutrition and agriculture. We had an efficient program for 2 days, saw 4 dairy farms, one feed center and had discussions with nutritionists.”

“Thank you for the lovely pictures you have sent, and I would like to thank you for the hall period that we spent in Israel and attended the course (lesson),it was full of knowledge experience, information, expertise, it was a compacted 3 days but couldn’t get better than it as we have met people with 40+years of experience in this field and they share everything with us, farmers too as they offered any time help with sharing their experience in every aspect. It was really beneficial course (lesson) and I would highly recommend it to everyone who have sheep and cattle”

“Данные курсы рекомендую тем, кто хочет понять основы молочного бизнеса, основываясь на принципах экономики и здравого смысла. Очень грамотный подход к ветеринарии. К сожалению в странах СНГ эти подходы диаметрально извращены. Интересно показаны основные подходы в кормлении и содержании. Некоторые аспекты заслуживают особого внимания. Рекомендую посетить специалистам, знающим базовые принципы молочного скотоводства. Руководство курсов познакомило в некоторой мере со святыми местами и особеностями жизни и быта израильтян.”
Переднев Владимир Владимирович
“I would like recommend this course to all farm practitioners, animal health experts and other service providers. The farm visits set in the backdrop of the harsh climate conditions are a must see for any dairy enthusiast.”

“The Israeli dairy model sparked a lot of debate within our group about how sustainable it is. But the interesting part for me is that all subsequent dairies we came to (or will come to soon) are now being judged through a different lens based on how they stack up compared to Israel’s cows. I think for many of us it was a paradigm shifting trip.”
Rob, Nuffield Australia
“Курсы прекрасно организованы. Лекторы представляют многоплановую структуру Израильской молочной индустрии. Хотелось бы видеть побольше крупных ферм , за которыми и будущее Израильской молочной отрасли. Вся информация очень проста и доступна, даже для специалистов общего профиля.”

“As Secretary of the British Sheep Dairy Association, I would like to thank both Dr Ofier Langer and Haim Leibovich, PhD for visiting us in the UK and being our keynote Speakers at the 2014 BSDA Conference.
It was a fascinating day, we heard how Agriculture in Israel has developed and how the Industry has become very efficient and makes use of technology where ever possible to improve flock health, improve milk yields and maximise margins.
Their knowledge of the dairy ewe is wide, all our members took away a lot of information and I would not hesitate to recommend The Israel Dairy School to anyone looking for detailed information on ruminants, dairy sheep in particular.”
Secretary British Dairy Sheep Association
“The Israeli Dairy School (IDS) are currently hosting me on my Nuffield New Zealand travels to Israel to study sheep milk farming and marketing globally. I have found them to be extremely well connected and knowledgeable about all sectors of the dairy industry in Israel. Ofier Langer and his team of consultants include some of the best researchers, vets, farmers and agri-technologists that I’ve met. IDS have organised me meetings and accommodation where available at various Mushav, Kibbutz and private farms to see contrasting scales and efficiencies of farming.
Farming and agriculture in Israel is known to be efficient, economic and technologically focused and everything I have seen here reflects that. As a country I found Israel to be peaceful, beautiful and very easy to navigate. The people are kind and generous and I would have no hesitation in recommending IDS to you. Please contact me if you would like a further reference.”

“The whole trip including logistics was managed by Lotem. Every single aspect of the trip was meticulously planned and ran on schedule. The trip included a well planned tour of tourist destinations in Israel on the last day of the visit. We highly commend the excellent work done by Lotem and recommend them to any organization that may require support in organizing or participating in such seminars and workshops in Israel.’
Dr. Robert Nyarango
“We attended a four-day tailor made seminar with the main focus on dairy management. It was a very well planned tour, where all practical arrangements were taken care of! We experienced four splendid days visiting different types of dairy farms and several different organisations and companies within the Israeli dairy production and dairy management. All of the speakers we met were professional and very competent – very interested in discuss-ing dairy management with us. Most days we also had a dairy professional (nutritionist, dairy researcher) along with us. This was a great opportunity to follow up on questions to all the impressions we experienced during our 10-12 hour daily program. A professional tour guide drove us from place to place, telling about geography, history and culture during the whole seminar, and finally he guided us during a magnificent visit in Jerusalem.
We definitly recommend other visitors with special interest into agriculture to cooperate with Lotem Seminars. If you have got the opportunity you should also spent some time exploring cultural aspects of Israel during your visit.”

The seminar was very well arrange by Lotem according to our needs and we were benefited from the very professional manner of meetings and interesting lectures that were organized for us, including tourist visit to Jerusalem.
We recommend to others who are interested in agricultural subjects to have their seminars with Dairy School.”
