Kama Dairy Farm

Background

Oren Kama, together with his father Alon Kama, owns and operates the Kama Dairy Farm on Moshav Avigdor in southern Israel. The farm first began operating in the 1950s and today has about 700 head of cattle – including dairy cows, calves and beef cows. It produces 1.2 million liters of milk a year (2.65 million pounds), at a profit of about NIS 0.50 ($0.15 US) per liter ($.07 per pound).

In addition to managing the Kama Dairy Farm, the father and son team operates a business for establishing and improving dairy farms around the world. One of them is usually abroad with this business, while the other manages the dairy farm on the moshav, together with two employees.
