Dry2Fresh Transition Program

Dry2Fresh is a new, Dutch transition program focused on preventing health problems on dairy farms. Farmer and vet cooperate by assessing risk factors together, scoring cows and keeping track of animal health in the transition period. The vet presents advise on setting goals and improving management for better performance. This way, both farmer and vet work in a sustainable, profitable and enjoyable way.

Dry2Fresh is fully supported by the online application Bluefrog, which presents insights and makes it easy to communicate and collect data.

 

“With Dry2Fresh, I feel in control of animal health at my farm.”

Mr. Schieven, dairy farmer
