To support the National Federation of Young Farmers Clubs (NFYFC) and the future dairy and livestock farmers across the UK, NWF offer cow signal workshops to clubs.
YFC Cow Signal Workshops
Imagine if you could tell what your cows are saying in terms of what they think about their environment, their diet which indicates how their performance can be improved.
Cow Signals, the concept of reading cow behaviour to identify areas for improvement in their surroundings or routine, is growing in popularity and enables dairy farmers to more closely meet their cows’ needs, leading to increased production and lower costs.
For production, health and welfare, a cow needs feed, water, light, air, rest and space, In addition, the cows should be free of infections and wounds.
FREE NWF Cow Signal Workshops
NWF can offer your YFC club FREE cow signal workshops, we offer two types of workshops:-
• Full Day Workshop from 10 am to 3 pm
The morning is a classroom session working through the Cow Signals concepts and the theory for each of the 6 signs. The afternoon session is on farm putting the theory into practice and seeing how the six signs work in a positive way and what changes can be made to make a difference to each cow and overall herd.
• Evening Presentation 2hrs
A member of the NWF team would visit your YFC meeting and present an overview of Cow Signals with take-home tips where simple changes on the farm or the way you watch the herd can make a difference.
If you are interested in either a full day workshop or evening presentation from NWF for your club or county please call Abi England on 0800 756 2787 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
