A dairy cow gives between 5 and 60 liters of milk per day during an lactation period: an average of 25 liters of milk per day. A cow is milked on average 315 days a year. This amounts to an average production of 8000 liters of milk per cow per year. Some cows produce 100,000 liters of milk during their lifetime.

Emergence

It is difficult to clearly pinpoint the exact emergence of the Dutch people; the interpretation of which is often highly personal.

Greater Netherlands

Dutch also saw the emerging of various Greater Netherlands- and pan-movements seeking to unite the Dutch-speaking peoples across the continent.

Cows are therefore important for our food supply . In dairy farming, the aim is to achieve increasingly higher production per cow per year. A cow can reach the age of 20 years. Nowadays, however, the average dairy cow is only five to six years old.

DIGESTIVE SYSTEM

A cow belongs to the herbivores . She pulls the grass with the tongue from the ground and grinds it between the lower teeth and the jaws . The cow is a ruminant and swallows the grass almost without chewing the first time. A cow has four stomachs. 

first stomach, the rumen , is full, the grass comes back in the mouth and the cow chews it fine. After this it is swallowed again. In the rumen, the food is fermented by microorganisms.

The second stomach, the net stomach, ensures that the fermented food flows through to the third,

Third stomach, the book stomach. In this stomach, the moisture is extracted from the digested food.

Finally the fourth stomach most closely resembles the stomach of non-ruminating mammals. Here the food is digested and passed on to the small intestine.

From calf to cow 

When a cow has calved for the second time she is called a shotter, after the third time a 3rd calf cow, after the fourth a 4th calf cow, etc.A cow that is ready to be fertilized is called drafty. This heat repeats itself every three weeks until the cow is pregnant.

Dairy cow, beef cow and double-purpose cow

Around 1900, good Dutch dairy cows gave around 2500 liters of milk per year. In principle, a cow must be milked twice a day, at least the first ten months after a calf is born. Cows that are kept for both milk and ultimately for meat are called double-target cows.

SHOW

At a show the cows are classified per group. With Red & White, Red & Heifers, Red & White, and Red & White are old.

This is the lyrics of the song "Arcade"

DUNCAN LAURENCE - ARCADE 

A broken heart is all that’s left
I’m still fixing all the cracks
Lost a couple of pieces when
I carried it carried it carried it home
 
I’m afraid of all I am 
My mind feels like a foreign land
Silence ringing inside my head
Please carry me carry me carry me home
 
I’ve spent all of the love I saved
We were always a losing game
Small town boy in a big arcade
I got addicted to a losing game
 
Oh, oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh
All I know, all I know
Loving you is a losing game
 
How many pennies in the slot
Giving us up didn’t take a lot
I saw the end ‘for it begun
Still I carried I carried, I carry on
Oh, oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh
All I know, all I know
Loving you is a losing game
 
Oh, oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh
All I know, all I know
Loving you is a losing game
 
I don’t need your games, game over
Get me off this rollercoaster 
 
Oh, oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh
All I know, all I know
Loving you is a losing game
 
Oh, oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh
All I know, all I know
Loving you is a losing game

terschellingThis is my favorite Wadden island! It is a short drive to Harlingen and a short boat ride to Terschelling, but then you have something. Beautiful nature and wonderful terraces. Drinks at cafe De Walvis, watch the sunset in West-Terschelling, rent a bike and take a ride through the dunes to Mitsland, grab a beach tent or drive over the beach to the Boschplaat with a 4 × 4

dove 3426159 640Amsterdam’s oldest church, the Oude Kerk, is a curious sight. Consecrated in 1303, the triple-nave Gothic church is surrounded by the window brothels, coffee shops, and bars of the city’s notorious red-light district. Inside are an impressive Christian Müller organ, some scandalous 15th-century carvings, and a floor built of gravestones.

The history of religion in the Netherlands has been characterized by considerable diversity of religious thought and practice.  From 1600 until the second half of the 20th century, the north and west were Calvinist and the southeast was in majority Catholic,[1] with Muslims and other religions concentrated in ethnic neighborhoods in the cities.

Prehistory and Early Middle Ages

Before the advent of Christianity, the Netherlands were populated by Celtic tribes in the South, which adhered to Celtic polytheism, and Germanic tribes in the North, which adhered to Germanic paganism. After the Roman Empire occupied the later southern Netherlands, Roman mythology became important there, as well as religions from the Middle East, including relics from Egyptian mythology, Judaism, Mithraism and later Christianity.
