Specially for people with little education and knowledge of cows, Vetvice/CowSignals and Roodbont are launching the CowSignals Basics book. We make it simple and clear.
The average size of dairy farmers in the countries with the most cattle is 2 animals. We are talking about countries like India, Indonesia, China and Africa. The caretakers of these animals often haven't had a lot of educaton. The milk of these cows is for their childrne: first as feed and later on schooling tuition, clothing and books are being paid with the incomes that is gained with milk.
These people often don't understand the basics of housing, feed and care for cows. Therefore they make the wrong choices, having a big negative impact on their own existence and that of their cattle. The same goes for milk quality and milk hygiene. With a better understanding of the essence of hygiene and infections, these people can sell much more quality milk.
CowSignals Basics explains with clear illustrations the basics of successful dairy management. The target group can read the book themselves and the pages in the book are exceptionally suited for explanaition and instruction. And that does not just go for the less educated in far away countries...
You can purchase the book at Roodbont Publishers in the Netherlands (€ 34,90) and The Olive Publishers in Kenia (2.500 Ksh.) People who are interested in a personalized edition for other countries can contact Roodbont.
