Hello, I am Stefan Freuen.

For decades I have been dealing with dairy cows both hands-on as a farmer and as a consultant in Germany. On one hand I concentrate on building an efficient and healthy herd and on the other hand on developing a profitable production. Documentation and data evaluation were the reasons in maximising the results in the long run. After all, only what is measured and controlled can be managed.
