Niels Achten works at LIBA as a business economics adviser for the dairy industry. He specializes in responding to economic issues, setting strategic plans, discussing and drawing up economic accounts and business plans. In addition, he has great interest in the relationship between cattle nutrition and economy. This stems from his studies.
Niels received his bachelor’s degree at the Catholic University of Leuven; subsequently he received a master’s degree in business economics and cattle nutrition at Wageningen University. He completed his studies with an investigation into the economic optimum production per cow in the post-quota era and the effect of silage resources on milk production. His practical knowledge stems from the family dairy farm with other crops as a sideline.
