Berkelaar family

Uddel
40-45

We are Jan, Dicky and Erwin Berkelaar and since July 1st we live in Uddel. We used to have a farm with cattle and sheep in the ‘Groene Hart’. It is nice to watch the calves walking around in herds and having the space to lay down and move whenever they wish. Jan and Erwin do the work while Erwin is also working as ZZP’er. If necessary, Dicky will help taking care of the calves. Our dogs like to go with us when we are doing our rounds in the stable.

Peter' Farm calves live in herds. This animal-friendly housingsystem gives the calves the freedom to choose for themselves whether they wish to walk, stand, lie down, play or sleep. In the stables there are skippy-balls to play with and brushes ro rub against. When a calf enters a feed station, it is recognised by the computer because of a chip each calf has in its ear tag. The calf can decide for itself when and how much it wishes to eat. In this way each calf is able to build its own biorythm. All information is stored in the computer, so we can see precisely how much each calf ate. The calves get both milk as roughage muesli. We are proud of the Dutch Society for the Protection of Animal (De Dierenbescherming) has given us the better life mark.
