CowSignals® The Farm Workshop Complete Series

$225.00
Welcome to CowSignals® e-learning! We are excited to teach you how to keep dairy cows healthy and happy. With CowSignals®, dairy cows produce more milk and have longer productive lives. Farms reach 2 more lactations, have lower replacement rates and produce more milk with the same amount of resources!

GOALS
This course contains chapters 3-5 of the full CowSignals® e-learning. The first two chapters have covered the theory of the CowSignals® method. In this course, we will put theory into practice by using the CowSignals® method to assess the conditions on a Dutch dairy farm.

CHAPTER 3: THE FARM WORKSHOP - FROM THE FEED ALLEY

In this chapter, we introduce you to assessing a farm with the CowSignals® method.
1) We visit the farm and interview the farmer to learn about its results, strengths, and weaknesses.
2) We assess the barn with a checklist; we observe feed, water, light, air, rest, and space from the feed alley.
3) We explain which signals we encounter and what they mean. What can be improved on this farm?

CHAPTER 4: THE FARM WORKSHOP - AMONG THE COWS

In chapter 4, we go among the cows and assess their health and welfare with our 2nd checklist.
1) We check if the cows get enough feed, water, light, air, rest, and space in the barn.
2) We explain which signals we encounter and what they mean.
3) We tell you which solutions could improve the health and welfare of these cows.

CHAPTER 5: THE FARM WORKSHOP - DETAILS, CONCLUSIONS & ADVICE

In this last chapter, we take it one step further:
1) We single out one cow and assess her health with our 3rd checklist.
2) We look for every detail that tells us something about the cow’s health and welfare
3) We explain which signals we encounter and what they mean.
4) We summarize the important signals we saw during the Farm Workshop in the previous chapters.
5) We draw conclusions and formulate advice for the farmer. What can he do to improve cow health and welfare on his farm?
