Construction starts on world’s first floating dairy farm


The construction of the world’s first floating dairy farm is underway in Rotterdam, Netherlands. This innovative farm will be will be home to 40 dairy cows when completed. The developers say the idea is that the farm will supply the city with fresh dairy products every day, “in an animal-friendly and circular manner.” The cows will be able to use a ‘cow garden’ at the top of the structure, with a soft floor which will have the feel of a natural living environment. There will be trees and bushes available to offer areas of shade and the roof of the cow garden can be entirely opened. Urine produced by the cows will drain through the floor and into an air-tight storage facility. Click here to read more on the floating dairy farm.Dairy Global
