The welfare of the cows is paramount and this couldn’t be illustrated better than our ‘Happy Cow’ brushes, which we have in our crew yard where the cows congregate after milking. Nature teaches us that cows behave in a specific way to clean themselves with the help of a tree or post to remove parasites, mites and lichen. This is not only a necessary act for the cows but also a pleasurable one, which will influence the production of milk in a positive way. We make every effort to grow as much of the feed for the cows as we can. This currently includes grass, grass silage, maize silage feed beans and feed beet.
