Project Canaan has been approached by Swazi Milk about purchasing a herd of 42 heifers (confirmed pregnant) that will be calving in October. We have grown enough food on PC this year to feed our existing cows and we also have enough to feed these additional animals without any significant expense. Adding these cows to our herd would increase our milk production by more than 500 liters a day, generating nearly $14,000 in additional revenue for Project Canaan by the end of 2018.
We need $59,000 to purchase this herd.
Here’s the great news - we’ve received $50,000 toward the purchase of this herd and now need only $9,000 to moooooove the cows to their new home!
The Project Canaan Dairy provides nutritious milk to our children (we now have 195) and our nearly 300 Swazi employees. The dairy also provides valuable vocational training and employment opportunities for local Swazis. Opportunities like this do not present themselves very often. The dairy on Project Canaan is a critical component of our sustainability initiative.
