At the Wijnhout-Nijman family from Wijhe (under Zwolle), the 189 cows are milked by 3 milk robots. At this modern dairy farm, the cubicles are filled automatically with sand, a robot handles the forage feeding, the cows walk under an insolated roof and outside loafing area. 

The Herd average is 11,465kg milk, 4.27% Fat, 3.60% Protein. During the last milk recording in October 2017, the cows were producing on average 36kg of milk per day with 4.26% Fat, 3.37% Protein.


Outstanding results with minimum costs.
The family Bloo has 60 cows 100% ProCROSS. Last year the business had the highest production from the CRV department of Raalte with 11,121kg milk, 4.66% Fat 3.55% Protein, milking twice a day. From the 250 top performing dairies in the Netherlands the Bloo family cows have the highest average lifetime production.

The dairy farm is simple in design, the Bloo family have no milk robot, no automatic feeders, no pedometers, no feed mixers, no manure robots and no heat time. It is a great example that with minimum costs, amazing results can be obtained.
