What do other say?

We always found the meetings enriching because our farm was screened/examined from different angles (personnel, animal monitoring, communication, monitoring, etc.). It ensured that our 'farm blindness' was dealt with and encouraged us to act on those blind spots.

Geert V

Dairy Producer

Our experience with Cow Coach added value to our practice. Kristine is particularly able to work in a planned way without losing sight of the end customer. By actively listening, she acts as a sounding board for vet and farmer.

Despite her own extensive knowledge and experience, the client's process of awareness remains paramount. That makes her an excellent coach with whom it is pleasant to work together

Kristine from Cow Coach has great experience with project management, a constructive and motivating attitude, and a strong background in veterinary medicine. This made her a welcome partner for our team and other project partners. It was pleasant working together in a context where professionalism always prevailed.
