Increasing our knowledge in sustainable dairy farming – focusing on housing design and management for large dairy herds

Digital bi-annual Large Customer Project Support and Development Conference. 

DeLaval experts and guest speakers, including Professor Jack Britt, specialized in emerging applied technologies, agricultural systems, biotechnology and bioenergy shared valuable knowledge at the bi-annual Large Customer Project Support and Development Conference. 

DeLaval colleagues working with planning, design, consultancy, dairy farming advisory and farm management support attended the two-day digital event. Over 150 attendees listened to speakers from Arla, Tetra Pak, National Milk Producers in the US and DeLaval experts who shared insights on sustainability in dairy farming and carbon footprint calculations. 

“The key take away from the conference was that a one size farm does not fit all. Milk production efficiency with animal welfare & cow comfort in the centre, secures food safety and food availablity. There is a clear correlation between high milk yield and low emission of CH4. The key to reduce emissions per kg of milk is to mechanize and modernize milk production”, says Lior Yaron, Vice President Large Customer Project Support.  

The team behind the conference works around the globe to provide new large dairy customers with total customised solutions as well as supporting existing large dairy customers with know-how.  They support complete dairy projects from the early stage to implementation and provide customer with, technical support, farm design, training, consultancy and farm management.
