The Judges Said “Our Winners have been ambitious, innovative, bold and effective.
There was evidence of a team approach which utilised robust data to make measurable improvements, considering prevention herd level as well as welfare at the individual cow level.
Jim and Trine Said “We are delighted to have received this award in recognition of all our work towards improving cow’s foot health! We use a combination of modern technology (Cowalert lameness detection by Icerobotics), routine foot trimming (johnny Miller & team) and footbaths, and quality staff attending to our cows. We will continue with this work to improve our cows’ welfare as we try and continuously improve in all aspects of dairy farming!”
