GenHotel members in top of annual statistics

Never before has the lifetime production of dairy cows in the Netherlands been so high, this was shown by the new annual statistics recently published by Coöperatie CRV. In the last year (2019-2020), the Dutch cows produced 34,000 kgs of milk with 2,691 kgs of fat and protein (increase of 2,500 kgs of milk and 200 kgs of fat and protein compared to the previous year). This increase can be explained by an increase in daily production and a longer productive life. In addition to these stastistics, the new average production of Dutch dairyfarmers were also released.
