Fane Valley Feeds Now Have 10 Cow Signal Master Trainers
16th November 2017
Ten members of the Fane Valley Feeds Sales and Technical Team have recently become certified Cow Signals Master Trainers under the instruction of Joep Driessen, Veterinarian and founder of the Cow Signals training company in the Netherlands.
The team from Fane Valley Feeds spent 4 days during September at the Cow Signals Training Centre, where they completed the Cow Signals training programme both in the classroom and on some of the leading dairy farms in the Netherlands, learning and mastering the art of cow signals.
Glenn Speer, Sales Director at Fane Valley Feeds outlines, “Our sales and technical team play a key role on many dairy farms, maximising performance and efficiency by ensuring the correct nutrition programme for the dairy cow. However, there are many other factors, which affect dairy cow performance from environment to housing. Our Cow Signal Masters are now fully qualified to identify the cow signals through observation of the cow. These signals highlight the factors on farm which can be improved to maximise cow comfort, cow health, feed intake, cow production and cow longevity leading to a more profitable and sustainable herd.”
Glenn continued, “It was a pleasure to have the world renowned Joep Driessen train our team at his Cow Signals Training Centre in the Netherlands. The team at Fane Valley Feeds now look forward to utilising their cow signal skills to the benefit of our customers”.
