Description of the measure

Through saisonal calving in spring, high quality food is available for the lactating cows

Comments on sustainability

The need of high quality food is very high after birth. At the same time, grassland (pasture, grass cutting) is very rich in energy and protein in spring . The supply with optimal food, supports the health and animal output. The need of silage or concentrate is reduced and therefore the GHG emissions.The adaptation possibilities in the barn and the conditions with the dairy company have to be checked.
