Installing a cow herd management system in a dairy farm
A young female farmer used RDP support to install a cow herd management system which improved the economic and animal welfare performance of the farm.
The beneficiary Mrs Milena Chodnicka is a young female farmer who owns dairy cattle farm. Previously, she had invested in building a new cowshed using RDP support. However, she wanted to improve the productivity of her farm further, whilst keeping her feeding costs to a minimum. Thus, she applied for RDP funding to install a new cow herd management system for managing the feeding and reproduction of the cattle in her new cowshed.
The new herd management system allowed the number of dairy cows to increase to 124 head: and
The milk production increased on the farm.
