The future of housing of dairy cows has been reviewed by researchers from the FreeWalk consortium. Now results available in Journal of Dairy Science and Journal Animals.

Animal welfare, natural behavior, low emissions, reuse of waste products, climate control, aesthetics of the building in the landscape, capital efficiency, and manure quality are the main drivers of future housing systems.

The study was financially supported by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Program under grant agreement No 696231, for research carried out within the ERA-NET SusAn project “FreeWalk”.
