The Antoniades family farm was established in 1929. It is located to the south of the island of Cyprus near the village of Pissouri, some 35km from the city of Limassol. It is established on a low hill area (altitude 50m from sea level) and prevailing temperatures in the area range between 5 – 20 degree celcius in the winter and 28 – 40 degree celcius in the summer. Humidity in the summer months ranges between 40% – 60%. we are suplling shami goat and chios sheep to all over the world.
The unit in 2010 comprised of 5,000 milking goats that were milked twice daily at equal milking intervals (at 5:00am and 17:00pm). The management system utilizes not only the seasonal character of the breed but also artificial induction of estrus during the anestrous period of the year. The main purpose of the practice is to provide the market with a constant supply of milk to the processing plant for the conversion of milk into the traditional “halloumi” cheese and pasteurized milk.
By 4 months of age female kids reach an average weight of 30-34kg and males 33-36kg. All animals selected fro breeding at 4 months of age enter an intensive immunization and veterinary control program. The mature (adult) body weight of the does ranges from 60-80kg and the bucks 80-100kg.
