The next Vetvice Certified Barn Designer Course is coming up!
Published on: 2015-09-28 00:00:00 - Category: Barn Design

Vetvice organises their second international Barn Designer Course from 7 until 10 December 2015 in the Netherlands. Parallel with the successful Certified CowSignals Trainers program and in imitation of last years’ successful first Barn Design Course, Vetvice is going to prepare professionals in this practical 4 day course to become Vetvice Certified Barn Designers.


The course is meant to be for people with some experience in building, designing or setting up cow sheds. The participants should have ambition to reach the highest possible level in functional barn design. Practical quality is shown in the overview and the details, combined with the logic for the people working in the shed.


The course is provided by senior Vetvice barn designers Nico Vreeburg DVM and Bertjan Westerlaan DVM. As with all CowSignals trainings, learning is always interactive and will focus on:


  • The standards and requirements for a stable for high-producing dairy cows and their offspring

  • Designing a detailed, practical barn with a focus on labor efficiency and cow traffic

  • Designing for flexibility and expandability

  • Cost effective and affordable design including comfortable stalls

  • Effective communication with principals and contractors


As an extension of the course we offer the Vetvice Barn Design Coaching. In this online service, participants receive 10 hours coaching and feedback on their projects from the senior barn designers.
