Dairy farmers are on the threshold of a transition to circularity in farming and climate-friendly farm management practice. This transition leads to structural and drastic changes. Triple Dairy is going to help there. The company is an initiative of Bles Dairies and since last week it has a cooperation agreement with Wageningen Livestock Research (WLR), part of Wageningen University & Research (WUR). Aeres, green knowledge institution, became a shareholder of Triple Dairy.
Besides these courses that are meant at first for Dutch dairy farmers, Triple Dairy is active in the development of teaching materials for the international dairy sector, both the business environment and the education sector. This in close cooperation with Delta Dairy Academy, a foundation established by Aeres and Bles Dairies. The demand for knowledge, practical skills and innovation in dairy is huge. On a global scale there is an increasing demand for sufficient, safe and nutritious food. To achieve greater reach and impact, Delta Dairy Academy uses a combination of e-learning and practical lessons, the so-called Blended Learning. This way it not only results in an outreach on a much wider scale, also the costs decrease. The dairy sector around the world is in the position to fully benefit and learn from Dutch expertise and experience. Fundamental principle is lifelong learning, refreshing and renewing knowledge must always be possible through access to the specifically created learning platform. This platform is also open for other knowledge providers.
In March this year, Triple Dairy BV was established by Bles Dairies. In the meantime it is a unique tripartite consortium with Aeres and Wageningen University, Triple Dairy applies the learning provisions of Delta Dairy Academy. Triple Dairy is located on Dairy Campus, the center for research and innovations of Wageningen University.
The Delta Dairy Academy foundation was set up by Aeres and Bles Dairies on 4 June. The foundation aims to develop and offer teaching and training material on dairy farming on an international scale. A specific feature is that content will be offered via a digital platform according to the Blended Learning approach. Delta Dairy Academy is cooperating closely with Triple Dairy for the implementation.
