The dairy farm comprises 130 milking cows and 90 young stock. We built the free-stall barn in 1979, and expanded it in 1988 and again in 2005 to a total of 135 cubicles, with R-shaped posts and fitted with mattresses. The ventilation is regulated by an automatic weather station, which opens or closes the curtain automatically. During hot and/or moist days we use four large ventilators for extra cooling. Since May 2005 we milk our cows using two Lely robotic milkers. Since 2012 we started testing CRV heifers.
