In the exclusively as family farms managed courtyards utmost importance is placed on the care taken on feeding and on the welfare of the animals. Only when the cow feels comfortable, the milk performance will be appropriate. That's why more cows are kept in animal-friendly freewheeling stables. Many cows are now milked by milking robots. That sounds very modern, but it is close to their natural behavior. Since the cow now itself determines when and how often they want to be milked.
A good calf rearing is essential for a long cow life. Therefore, the calf from birth on come in airy freewheeling stables, mostly in the so-called "Calf hutches" where they are free to move from inside to outside and they have the opportunity to take food of their choice.
