Research facilities

With 500 dairy cows, six cowsheds, training and meeting facilities and 300 hectares of land, Dairy Campus is the only one of its kind in the world. We are part of Wageningen Livestock Research. It’s an inspiring environment for everyone working in the dairy sector. At Dairy Campus, we offer facilities for experimenting, innovating, and developing and sharing knowledge. Our aim is to make new information available to practitioners as fast as possible.

Each cowshed at Dairy Campus has its own research theme, such as animal feed, milk, manure or environment and is equipped with practical trial areas for different types of experiments. 

Every week we welcome visitors from all over the world and run numerous activities covering various areas of expertise. 

Among other things, our cowsheds and fields are used for: 

  • Animal feed and efficient feeding
  • Reducing emissions
  • Manure processing
  • Grass and soil
  • Grazing systems
  • Raising youngstock
  • Smart Farming
