Robotic Milking Farming Note

In Holland, around 15% of dairy farms milk through robots. Sales of robots in the UK are a long way behind this, but it is an increasing market. Dairying is a difficult sector to attract workers to, and the average age of UK dairy farmers is increasing. Does this open a window of opportunity for robotic milking systems in the UK?

This 2-part Farming Note covers:

  • Productivity and lifespan of a robot
  • Considerations before you install robots
  • Cow flow options
  • Grazing cow management
  • The current robot market

Issued February 2012.
