The Netherlands: number of youngstock per dairy cow has gone down

In Holland the number of youngstock per dairy cow has gone down from 0.82 head in 2015 to 6.4 head in 2018, according to Wageningen University & Research. This is mainly caused by the new phosphate policy of the Dutch government. With a certain phosphate quota with less youngstock a farm can keep more dairy cows.
