This month, the Grassland Center (Germany, Lower Saxony) organised a cross-visit-exchange with dairy farmers across Europe. The idea was to welcome partners of both Inno4Grass and NEFERTITI to visit farms in North Germany and benefit from fruitful peer-to-peer learning sessions.
Farmers and consultants from several EU countries visited the Luerßern family farm in Uthlede. Claus Christian Luerßen first gave the 30 interested visitors an overview of the 400 ha farm with 800 dairy cows before taking them on a tour of the farm. The visit took place as part of a cross-visit to the NEFERTITI project, in which the Grassland Centre is a partner. Other participants included visitors taking part in the EU Inno4Grass project coordinated by the Grassland Centre. Over the course of the day there were various farm visits before all 60 participants from both projects met in the evening to exchange experiences.
