Our office specializes in architectural and constructive designs of cowsheds for milking cows and cows for the meat market. We have a lot of experience and that puts us as one of the leading cowshed planning companies in the country. We planed around 150 family cowsheds that a few of them where corporate ones ( up to 6 partners and 300 milking cows).and around 40 cowsheds in kibbutzim some as corporate of 2 and 3 of them. We planed cowsheds around the world for promontories from Israel and foreign ones from Africa, eastern Europe, central Europe, the far east and the middle east. Right now we are working on projects in Indonesia and Vietnam (ordered by the foreign affairs ministry). We see the planning of cowsheds of all types as our main trade.
Designing milking parlors is specialty unto itself. There are many and varied ideas as to how parlors should be accessed by the cows, and how the milking stations grade of incline of access ramps, traction on the floor and ramps, drainage, milking systems and their accompanying bundles of tubes and hoses, equipment used in identifying, registering, and tracking cows and milk production, and any other equipment needed to efficiently manage a cow shed using the newest and best technology to ensure the maximum production of milk.
Agroplan has years of experience in dairy farm design, and has designed tens of dairy parlors both locally and abroad. Recent projects included the planning of a milking parlor of 52 stations for the dairy corporate of Ein HaMefratz/Parod/Gadot/Gadot
Chicken coops are designed for various needs "heavy reproduction" for the egg market, "light reproduction" for fertilized eggs. And fattening for the meat market.
There are two major designs confined or free ranging.
There are comparable facilities for turkeys.
All coops require installed ventilation equipment of varying size, length, and sections. All coops must satisfy the regulations of both veterinary departments of theMinistry of Health and the Ministry for Environmental Protection.
Designing equestrian stables is a particular specialty. Areas have to be planned for the housing of male and female horses. In addition, exercise and practice areas must also be taken into account. Agroplan designed the largest covered menaz in Israel, located on Kibbutz Netzer Sireni (40m/170m) without columns, as well as a circular structure for galloping and exercise.
Agroplan has designed smaller equestrian facilities, and is in the process of upgrading the stables at the Kedma Youth Village. We just recently finished a compound for 8 horses at the Davis Farm in Satariya.
Packing & Colling houses
Agriculture in Israel has gone from being a "cottage industry" to being an "agro-industrial endeavor". Agriculture today is comprised of a few high volume farmers growing produce for industry as well as a large fresh market. These agro-industrial farmers sort and pack their own crops, storing them on the premises in industrial sized, refrigerated rooms.
Agroplan specializes in designing both the sorting sheds and the refrigerated rooms. We have built facilities for Rani Brans of Karmon, Yuval Ohali in Nir Yisrael (storage for coffee beans), Avnir in Paran (sorting and packing rooms for peppers) and the Chipman family in Beit Zaron. These are just a few of our satisfied clients.
Feeding - Barns
Haylofts, Barns are relatively simple buildings that are used to store straw used as animal feed. The capacity of a hayloft is measured in the number of tons that can be stored in it during the winter season.
Today our office is planning haylofts for large feed centers in the country with capacity ranging up to 1000 tons. For safety reasons, mainly for protection in case of fire, the size of the lofts is limited and proximity to other lofts is prescribed. Our office excels in proper design thus reducing the price of constructing the lofts.
Feeding - constetrate cells
Most feeding stations have separate compartments for the different types of foods and additives
powders, grains, seeds, etc. These ingredients are stored in concrete compartments or silos, and mixed according to nutritional requirements. The larger the number of compartments, the more possibilities available for customized diets.
Agroplan has designed many such feeding stations for small family farms as well as large agro-industrial facilities.
Feeding - sillige pits
Silage pits are used to store green or undried cattle fodder—wheat, corn, sorghum, or other grains. These pits are measured by the number of tons of fodder they are capable of holding. Agricultural feeding stations usually have a number of pits so that an empty pit can be filled while the others are used for feeding. Volume of the pit is determined by the height of its restraining wall. The wall must be designed to match the capability of the farm to fill the pit.
Agroplan has designed a large number of silage pits, including one of 1,000 square meters within a 6 meter high perimeter wall for the feeding station at Masuot Yitzchak.

The electric company encourages production of "green electricity" in the outlying areas.
"Green electricity" is produced from solar energy, wind or any other nature force.
The contract between the producer and the electric company is a 20 year contract that says that during that time they have to turn over all of there production to the company. The electric company promises to pay a high price to the producer for each KV.
We see in the building of a solar farm an agriculture project that uses the natural sources and saves water. We think that in the next few years this area is going to develop and in the agricultural field farmers will be able to build them on the existent farm buildings and will be able to build a ground level tracking solar system.
Now we are working together in building a number of projects that are going to be connected to the electric company as a suppliers.
