Rezumat: The project is demanded by the present state of Romanian agriculture in general and livestock sector in particular, but it also aims to address the important issue of converting conventional dairy farms into bio-milk producing farms. BIOBUFFALO established a technology model for an organic buffalo farm and a code of good practice for bio-farms. The overall objective of the project was to establish a model of organic buffalo milk farm and a code of best practice for converting conventional farms to organic farms. Specific objectives of the project were: implementing modern technologies for buffalo breeding in Romania; analysis of land conversion potential for organic farms fodder; comparative financial analysis between conventional and organic farms.

Derived objectives were: establishing a partnership between research and development organizations (USAMV Bucureşti, SCDCB Şercaia) and a food industry company, in order to reach a functional model, that can be transferred and replicated at national level; promoting buffalo milk products; improving the quality of life in local communities.

The project’s result are applicative and replicable by upgrading a buffalo farm and developing a code of good practice.
