To improve lifetime production of dairy cows many factors like health, fertility and feed efficiency play a role. Together with Koudijs experts the biggest potential improvement points will be detected and appropiate measures will be discussed.

Culling of cows in their first lactation is very expensive and not desired, so yes it is important to improve that. There can be many causes but often a poor quality of calf rearing is an important factor. Careful analysis needs to be done. Where are the biggest mistakes made and where can the biggest or fastest improvements been made. Our Koudijs experts are happy to discuss the possibilities to improve your rearing programm.

There is a lot of evidence, both in the scientific world as well s in the field, that by rearing the calves optimally you will get stronger dairy cows with a higher production in first lactation but also total life production. This reduces the rearing costs per kg milk produced strongly and therefor it has a strong correleation with overall profitability of a dairy farm. So it is an opportunity for you to make a difference for these customers.
