What do you see? Feeding Signals in Canadian barn

Farmer Andre Katers shows us a typical morning in his barn.
First video is shot at 6 am, he just puched the feed.

Second video is shot at 6.45 am, after sweeping the feeding alley.

Third video is shot at 7 am, just after feeding. Feed is available on both sides.

I would say it is a typical robot barn with a feed pusher. The cows would only crowd the bunk at feed out with bad feed or no feed in the bunk.

After have listened Joep in a workshop where he claimed that a cow needs 70 cm eating place for achieve a high milk production, I sent this video. We feed once a day, we push the feed 4 times a day and practise compact feeding. We see it as a success, when the cows don't rise right after feeding.
