In their own words

“Our first objective is to increase the milk production per cow and reach 8,500 kg/cow/lactation. We want to simplify the work organization, reach a better profitability and keep the milk quality.
We chose to work with Easylin in a way to increase the milk production. It’s not the cheapest feed but we saw a good return on investment. We observed a better start of lactation and cows have a better persistency. Our aim is to reduce the calving interval as much as possible. We select the cows on different criteria: milk production level, thoracic capacity, feet and legs and udder. We want two keep the both aptitude of the cows: milk production and beef production of the Simmental breed.”

What makes you different: Using linseed-based feed makes us a bit different, and also successful regarding the animal welfare and milkproduction.
