About the company

The Russian Dairy Company (Rusmolco) is one of the leaders of the Russian dairy industry. It ranks within the top three largest milk producers in the Russian Federation and is the largest milk producer in the Penza region.


Rusmolco was established in October 2007 and started its business from restoration and reconstruction of obsolete dairy farms in the Penza region. Modern technologies were introduced at the farms that the company acquired in 2007-2008: new equipment was installed; old livestock was replaced by highly productive Holstein cows.

In 2012, Rusmolco entered into a strategic agreement and launched a joint venture with Olam International Limited, which marked a critical milestone in the development of Rusmolco’s business. Olam International Limited (OLAM) is a leading agribusiness operating from seed to shelf in 70 countries, supplying 44 different products across 16 platforms to over 14 000 customers worldwide. Olam ranks within the top six agriculture companies globally and within the top three agriculture companies in Asia.


Currently, Rusmolco runs its operations in the following areas of the Penza region: Bashmakovo, Pachelma, Kuznetsk, Narovchat, Nizhniy Lomov and Kamenka. Today Rusmolco is specialized in dairy farming, feed and crop production with the total herd of 15 000 animals and 136 000 hectares of prime farmland under management. In 2015 Rusmolco’s milk output amounted to 52 000 tonnes. The best practices are carefully selected by our dairy experts and applied to our farms. This allows us to get premium quality milk at a reasonable cost of production.

Joint efforts of Rusmolco and Olam International are aimed at development of dairy farming and crop production in Russia. Till date, Rusmolco has successfully done several investment projects. The company has already completed two state-of-art dairy farms for 3600 and 4600 heads in the Penza region. These facilities are considered as the largest and most technologically advanced in Russia and the European continent.


The Narovchat farm, inaugurated in 2010, became the first modern large-scale dairy in the Penza region. Capacity of the farm is 3600 cows producing 30 000 tonnes of high quality milk per year.

The Arshinovka dairy farm, opened in 2014, is designed for 4600 cows and 1500 heads of young stock.  Milk production is 40 000 tonnes per year. It is the largest dairy farm in Russia and the European continent.

In 2014, Rusmolco made decision to invest into building herd reproduction centres in the Kuznetsk area, Penza region. This gives Rusmolco control the entire technological chain of a cow’s life cycle. A key stage of this cycle is executed through our reproduction centre, the first in Russia, inaugurated in August 2015. The ultimate goal is to home-grow pedigree heifers in good health, with better genetics, less stress and more acclimatised to Penza’s conditions. We expect that in future this centre will not only produce heifers for Rusmolco’s requirements but supply pedigree heifers to other dairy farms of Russia. At a 5 200 head capacity, this is Europe’s largest and most modern herd reproduction facility.


In 2017, Rusmolco expects to generate 2400 Holstein replacements for its herd from its own reproduction centers.

Rusmolco has already achieved an average production of over 9 000 kg per cow a year which is 2 times higher than the national average milk production.


Rusmolco is one of the leading crop producers of the Volga region. Currently the company manages about 136 000 hectares of farmland for feed production for its dairy operations and commercial agriculture. Feed production has a strong impact on cost of production of milk as well as guarantees feed availability for such large herds. In the current year Rusmolco plans to produce about 195 000 mt of forages. By growing commercial crops like wheat, barley, corn, soya, sugar beet Rusmolco continues to improve its land quality through crop rotation. In 2016 we plan to harvest 125 000 ha of grains, 100 000 ha of sugar beet and 30 000 mt of technical crops.

In the sphere of agriculture Rusmolco has invested about USD 50 mln in the world’s leading agricultural machinery and technology in order to achieve productivity levels that are significantly higher than the standards in the region. The company has taken a pioneering role in growing large scale areas of high protein crops like soya, corn and lupine which in the past have not been successful crops in the region. In 2015 Rusmolco planted 7000 ha of soya and achieved average yield of 2 mt per ha; corn yield averaged at 8 mt per ha from the area of 9000 ha which are both records for the region.


Rusmolco has made significant investments into infrastructure to support crop production plans:

The construction of central agricultural base in Pachelma which is logistically the most optimal point between our commercial farming operations, machinery fleet maintenance, storage of chemicals, fertilizers and spare parts and controls.

We have also completed construction of grain drying and cleaning facility in Troitsk with the capacity of 1000 mt per day and silo bag grain storage facility for 50 000 mt.

Rusmolco is nearing completion of a 100 000 mt capacity commercial elevator that has drying capacity of over 4000 mt per day. It is the most modern facility of its kind in the Penza region. The elevator is designed with railroad connection and additional silo bag storage capacity on premises of 70 000 mt.

Rusmolco’s latest investment has been made into the modern seed line with capacity of 10 mt per hour. It will be capable of doing seed production of multiple crops. It will not only support Rusmolco’s seed requirements but also help to provide high quality seeds to other farmers in the region. 


The key to the success of Rusmolco is our people. The company has a strong team, which is a good blend of expatriate technical specialists and local managers with extensive experience. The company strongly believes in “Growing responsibly” for long term benefit of suppliers, customers, shareholders and everyone relying on Rusmolco for a livelihood.
