Animal-Centered Environments

Animal-Centered Environments are based on the idea that barn systems should be designed around the health and biology of the animals and people inside the barn, not just the shape of the building.

You can put herd health and cow comfort first with fresh air, optimal light, and cool temperatures in any climate, all year long.
Animal Centered Environments

Healthier cows maximize the production, profitability, and potential of your dairy farm. Improvements in dairy technology can drive instant ROI for your farm.
