The art of decision making is one of the most important aspects of economic management. Economics & milking explains how to make decisions: Do I build a new barn? How do I get the maximum amount of dry matter content from my land? For which price can I buy feed? When should I sell a cow? Economics & milking shows in a practical way how you can optimise the economic management of your dairy farm. It teaches you the basic principles of economical thinking, acting and working on a dairy farm. With interesting questions and examples straight from the farm.
