The dairy farm comprises 220 milking cows and 140 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. In 2016 we have built a totally new free-stall barn with 125 cubicles. Since May 2005 we milk our cows using two Lely robotic milkers. Since 2012 we started testing CRV heifers.
