Strong dairy cows

Dairy cows that stay healthy and productive until a very late age, without the use of antibiotics. That is what Wageningen UR scientists are working on to make milk production more sustainable. They analyse the DNA of hundreds of bulls - ancestors of all Dutch dairy cows - to learn more about the genetic predisposition of today's cows.
