What is the sustainability bonus?
The milk we produce is among the cleanest in the world. A key factor in this is the wellbeing of animals. To improve it even further, we intend to increase the number of farms that receive our sustainability bonus. Here are the requirements for it:
- The farm is included in Naseva, the bovine health register, and a farm visit by a veterinarian to check up on animal health at least once per year
- Regular hoof health tracking and treatment
- Anaesthetics, pain relief and sedation during disbudding, i.e. removal of a calf’s horn buds
- New barns must be built as free-stalls, which allow the cows to move about as they please
- No soy or GMO in feed
