After the opening ceremony Arifagić told reporters that this modern farm can serve to the peoples in the region as an example that their future is entirely in their hands.

“If we want to create something valuable that will be appreciated by the world, then we must first of all be the ones who will unite and find solutions to our problems. In a way, I am an example of a man who seeks to make progress in these areas, but I am also aware that building a strong collective, in fact a communion and participation of citizens of Prijedor, the wider region and the whole country in this project, we can make steady progress in terms of the economy and everything else,” said Arifagić.

In the past seven years, Arifagić has invested in the construction of the farm and the equipment, the most modern equipment, among which computer equipment, eight million BAM of his own funds, while six million BM are loans funds from the Turkish Zinat bank.

He added that the farm has its own space for the storage of milk, a veterinary station and agricultural pharmacy, and points out that this is not the ultimate capacity, as they plan to build new stables for about 5,000 dairy cows and work for 500 workers.
