Research facilities

On our 14 hectare Dairy Campus site, we have six units housing a total of 550 cows. We also have various working spaces, training rooms and a reception building with offices.

Each dairy house at Dairy Campus has its own research function. With 550 dairy cows, six dairy houses, a working unit and more than 300 hectares of land and training/meeting facilities, Dairy Campus is the only one of its kind in the world.
