About this book

Feeding Signals answers the four practical questions that every dairy farmer and worker in every dairy farm asks:
1. What should I feed and how much?
2. What is the best way to make sure every animal gets the right ration?
3. How do I check that every animal is eating what it should be eating?
4. How do I make adjustments and solve particular problems? 

The authors of Feeding Signals are Jan Hulsen from Vetvice and Dries Aerden from LIBA. With a team of eight vets, Vetvice trains and advises dairy farmers and farm consultants. Dries Aerden is a farm economics consultant and nutritionist at LIBA, a Belgian consultancy operating in the Flemish and Dutch dairy sector.
