At the upcoming EuroTier, Dairy Global presents a webinar on the challenges and opportunities for dairy farming. How to feed cows and how to farm in a sustainable way? 3 experts shed their light on this issue.
Getting cows off to a good start is pivotal to ensure optimal lactation periods of the animal. The focus on calf nutrition programmes is key to achieving this goal. But also rumen health, stimulating and focus on animal welfare is pivotal in getting more milk out of the cow in a healthy and sustainable way.
