When a child feels pain, he may point to his stomach or head when asked. When an animal stops eating and drinking, the cause is hard to find. Therefore, good observation skills are part of the daily life of Swiss farmers who raise livestock.

Are your animals okay? Do they interact with other animals or their surroundings? What can I do to keep them healthy? Because a farmer gives his cows antibiotics, their milk should not go into the production chain, at least temporarily. So you must be careful. And after looking.

The ultimate goal: animal health

30 organic dairy farmers from the cantons of Lucerne and Aargau take a different approach. Your ultimate goal is to have healthy animals in the barn. Health is more important than performance. The strategy of farm, animal husbandry and animal husbandry allows their dairy cows to never be treated with antibiotics. The exceptional organic milk, unique in Switzerland, is available under the newly launched “retour aux sources” label. It meets the “Check After!” For organic pioneer Werner Lampert, which provides high animal welfare measures:

  • Compulsory grazing and free housing for livestock. Exercising outdoors strengthens the immune system. Not only in humans, but also in animals.
  • Meadows and pastures Concentrated Feed-Free Forage: In other words, proper feeding of the species that reduces digestive problems and keeps cows healthy.
  • Milk yield adapted to the site. There is as much milk as their meadow forage will allow.
  • High and stable cleanliness, which avoids infection.
  • Good human-animal relationship, which is why diseases can be recognized early and alternative treatment methods can be started.
  • Maintain strong breeds of cows adapted to the site.
  • Good management and alternative therapies.

Such good management and alternative treatment methods prevent diseases as much as possible. Various studies conducted in recent years also confirm that high standards of animal care enhance the overall health of the herd.
