As a cooperative, we belong completely to our farmers. It goes without saying that we value respect and their right to have a say. Likewise we insist on the fair, above-average milk prices offered to our farmers.

In a ten-year comparison, we pay the highest milk prices in Germany.

 

Why fair milk prices are important to us.

 

  • We provide stability for small-scale family farms whose operations may be a main or secondary business.
  • Our farmers make a crucial contribution to preserving the cultural landscape.
  • The workload is considerably higher in mountainous region.
  • Our farmers take active steps to protect drinking water.
  • Our farmers ensure strong animal health.

On average, our farmers keep

cows.

Our cows produce

7.500

litres of milk per year on average *

* whereas a high-yield cow gives about 12,000 litres a year

Animal welfare is the key factor for the best dairy products.

 

  • In a way, you could say that cows are our most important employees. Healthy cows are crucial when it comes to milk quality.
  • Our farmers look after only a small number of animals, which means they can provide intensive, individual care.
  • The basic feed is natural and appropriate for each species. Grass may be fresh in the meadow, cut in the stable or preserved as hay or silage.
  • To give the cattle more exercise, we support our farmers with a team of advisers and a bonus system.

Milk contains nutrients that the body needs each day: vitamins, minerals and trace elements, including

vitamins A, B1, B2, D, potassium, magnesium, iodine and calcium

 

The natural feed provides valuable nutrients and a good flavour. For example, the milk of cows that graze on mountain pastures and meadows contains a higher proportion of healthy omega-three fatty acids, linoleic acids, vitamins and minerals.

A daily source of energy.

 

  • Made from the best milk in the mountain and Alpine region without preservatives or binding agents.
  • Gentle processing that maintains high quality.
  • Calcium in milk for strong bones and teeth.
  • High-quality milk protein for muscle strength.
