Las Villas Dairy Farm (Pty) Ltd.

The idea is to produce pasteurized fluid milk, yoghurt and ice cream. The establishment of the dairy farm will increase per cow milk production through state of art farm management facilities; efficient and effective utilization of dairy production and development of technologically advanced infrastructure. The dairy cows will be kept primarily for milk production in the conventional housing system.

Investment Opportunities

Dairy farming is a viable business proposition for both rural and peri-urban areas of Lesotho. The above indicated dairy products will compete with the imported dairy products, bringing a complete new segment in the market; as there are no locally produced, high quality and branded fresh products available. The project will involve housing, breeding, feeding, watering, disease control and hygienic production of value added dairy products as indicated. The initial milk production will start at a minimum of 2,000 litres to 6,000 litres per day. The projected peak production of 60,000 litres per day will be realized through the establishment of satellite farmers at district level. Target market will be high end supermarkets, mini markets, convenient stores and the hospitality service providers.
