To truly know how cows are managed, we need to observe them and their caretakers for several hours.
We need to see how feed is mixed and delivered, how milking is performed and determine how often feed is pushed up. How much time are cows away from feed? How much time do cows spend standing, and what are air quality and comfort factors at various times of the day? We cannot get this information while talking to owners or managers. Many times they themselves do not know, even if they think they do.
