De Koeientuin is a revolutionary animal housing system. The cattle shed the cows would choose if you asked them! A perfect example of Advanced Innovation. This concept is transporting the sector at high speed towards socially acceptable dairy farming.
Innovatiemotor Courage took De Koeientuin from the drawing board to the farmyard in collaboration with ID Agro, Betebe, Pape Creavorm and Chris Bomers.
“Acting as Courage's partner for external communication, we are continuously working to make the innovation process more transparent: the challenges this involves; the patience it demands; the new forms of collaboration needed, and the freedom to implement groundbreaking innovations such as De Koeientuin. The sector can be justifiably pleased with what Courage is doing. We hope people are listening, because Courage is the most successful ' little guy' in the field of groundbreaking innovation and innovative crossovers,"
Marill Ooms, senior consultant Imagro
"Dare, persistence and entrepreneurship. A fantastic achievement. We're incredibly proud of it, and there's more to come. Innovation is a continuous process. We’re now ready to expand and optimise the concept."
