Our Farm Management consultants will help you and your team improve overall farm performance and the process of milk production in a lean and more efficient way.  

DairyWise, a business optimization program for dairy farms is suitable for farms of 4 robots or more and have been operating for a minimum of 6 months.

Improved efficiency, why is it important?

Trends predict that the world population will grow by another 28% by 2050. In order to facilitate global food demands the agricultural sector will need to see a significant improvement in its efficiency. This efficiency begins inside the farm gate. 

The intensification of milk production in a sustainable and profitable way will require farmers to embrace new ways of working. In addition, farm engagement, labor efficiency and continuous improvement in farming are key elements to overcome the challenges in milk production and secure farm succession.
