Maximising the environment for the high yielding cow meetings

Published 7 September 18

This series of practical workshops aimed at farmers with housed herds of high yielding cows will help you optimise the environment and maximise herd performance.

In high yielding, all year round calving herds, marginal gains can have a big impact on the bottom line and the limiting factor is often the environment in which cows can express their potential.

These practical on farm session, limited to a maximum of 25 attendees will look at maximising performance by making improvements to ventilation, feed space and cow comfort.

By the end of the workshops you'll learn how to:

  • Assess your own building to identify the restrictions in ventilation, feed space and cow comfort
  • Maximise productivity from your current building
  • Avoid the pitfalls and impacts of new building designs
  • The cost/benefit of building modification
