Our fertility expert and trainer Anne just returned from a visit to Vietnam and Indonesia. In both countries our consultancy branch is engaged as partner in a 5 year dairy development project and provides trainings on a quarterly basis. Anne visited farmers and conducted several trainings in modern dairy farm management. He concludes: “farmers and extension workers are eager to learn and really want to improve”. With the obtained knowledge and skills, extension workers try to motivate their farmers to produce more and better milk.
In both countries there is still a big demand for fresh and high quality milk and milk products. Although it’s not always easy for the Holstein Friesians to express their high genetic potential, some farmers do really well and they know how to manage and especially feed these cows. More trainings are scheduled for 2017!
