De Römer V.O.F. is a goat farm that milks 3000 goats at its main site. The animals used for breeding are housed on another site. “Our management system consists of a cycle that is repeated three times a year. That means that we mate and inseminate a number of our does three times a year so every four months we have a cycle when kids are born.” explains Jasmijn Strous, farm manager at De Römer V.O.F.
Goats are seasonal breeders; a correct light climate is essential for optimal production and animal welfare.
