Power to the Cows!

Sustainable dairy husbandry is very well possible, provided we think and act differently. A very high standard of animal wellfare can be combined with considerable ecological improvements without compromising economic feasibility. That is the conclusion of the report 'Kracht van Koeien', presented to the Dutch minister of agriculture Gerda Verburg on March 17.

'Kracht van Koeien' is a system innovative research project in which KSI researcher Bram Bos participates. Read more about the project or download the full report (Dutch) on the cow project website at Wageningen University.
