Robotic milking | Farming Today | BBC Radio 4


curated by | April 22, 2014

“Caz Graham explores the robotic revolution on dairy farms. Sally Wilson farms 300 Holsteins in the Scottish Borders and shows Caz how she milks them using three robots.” (Segment begins at 3:07)

John Payne‘s insight:

Milking robots first became available in the early 90s, and dairy farmers were initially slow to adopt them, but that has begun to change.  For herds of a certain size and above, the robots have proven themselves to be a good investment, and the cows love it!
