Abstract Measures that make economic sense for a dairy farm often turn out to be less beneficial for the welfare of the cows. On the other hand, an improvement in animal welfare can turn out to be bad for the environment. ‘These intractable cause and effect connections occur frequently in modern cattle farming systems, but they could be disconnected from one another by a completely new approach’, argues Bram Bos from Wageningen UR. This is what the project Cow Power, that ran from 2007-2009 was all about.
