Optimised husbandry methods lead to more economic efficiency in dairy farming. We support you in planning your barn construction for maximum comfort for animals and humans.
What needs to be considered in dairy farming?
There are three aspects that form the basis for healthy, productive animals:
- Fresh air
- And comfort.
If the cows feel comfortable, there are less cases of illness, feed intake increases and as a result, the farmer gets a higher milk yield.
More space - higher milk yield?
So far, there have been few holistic studies on the effects of different husbandry systems on animal welfare and the performance of dairy cows.
However, studies indicate that although pasture management increases animal welfare, it has weaknesses in terms of feeding. Milk yield is significantly higher with year-round (loose) housing, provided that the barn offers soft, spacious lying areas and walking surfaces that mimic the grazing surface.
In recent years, the housing of dairy cows has become much more animal-friendly and work-friendly for the farmer thanks to wider aisles, optimised cubicles and spacious stable constructions.
