Last week, we opened up the conversation about barn layouts, talking briefly about free cow traffic.
Today, we’d like to talk a little more about the concept of free cow traffic and, once again, open it up for questions and comments.
Free cow traffic – it is their choice
We admit that when we started robotic milking 2 decades ago, we, too, thought that efficient milk production could only be achieved by continuously forcing cows. However, in practice after a couple of years, it was clear that dairy farmers who let their cows totally free achieve the best results. Just like humans, cows do not like to be pushed around.
