After one year of intensive preparations, the pilot surveys in D4Dairy will start in January 2020. For the LKV-employees, who are in charge of the participating D4Dairy pilot farms, it will now be intensive. Over the next one and a half years, they will regularly record health data such as BCS and the locomotion score. To prepare them accordingly, there were some extensive training sessions, most recently at the LFS Kirchberg am Walde near Grafendorf near Hartberg and at the dairy farm Reindl in Straßwalchen in Salzburg.
