Master Course "Feed Ration Planning in Dairy Cattle Herds" is organized by Senior Researcher Martin Riis Weisberg from Aarhus University (Denmark). According to Martin, "One of the main reasons NorFor has become the official feed evaluation system is because NorFor does an excellent job predicting the feed value, which is essential due to the high feed prices."
The main goal is to give students a theoretical background for feed ration planning using NorFor’s software. Furthermore, the course encourages an international environment. "For international students this course gives an advantage in order to learn Nordic systems, who are leaders in data collection", Martin says. The course includes farm visits for case evaluation, which enables students to plan, evaluate and discuss feed rationing in commercial dairy herds.
