Milchviehhaltung ist die Passion von Nazmi Ilicali
With his most current project he provides a new perspective for 400 dairy farmers in 42 villages. When the organic dairy plant starts in fall 2012, mostly women will find new jobs
there. With his great experience, Nazmi Ilicali was predestined to coordinate the development of the Anatolian standard for organic cultivation which also serves as standard for all of Turkey.
