Family Goesten in Hedel
Initially we had chosen a closed floor. However, as the construction project progressed, we started to have more and more doubts. I once came across the Eco-Floor at an open day. Yes, I thought it was the Mercedes of floors. Ammonia reduction was one reason for me to invest in the Eco-Floor. Especially since it decreased halfway through last year. The combination rubber and concrete is super. You see the cows jump up more easily and they are not afraid to walk. The permeability works perfectly. It will definitely benefit age distribution with regard to my cows' life expectance.
I'm not worried about the investment in the Eco-Floor not paying for itself. Because I am already benefitting in several ways. I always say, "spending a pound hurts, but a penny does too. But if the penny is well spent you soon forget about it". If I look at it now I see that the future of my farm looks bright. My son is 14 and wants to take over the farm later on.
