Farm walk on the farm of Aidan and Anne Power, Co. Tipperary

Posted in Category(ies):  Preview

The Irish Grassland Association in conjunction with its AutoGrassMilk partner Teagasc will host an open day on the farm of Aidan and Anne Power, Templederry, Co. Tipperary on Wednesday 7th October.  This event will showcase the use of a robotic milking system in an intensive grazing farm.  The Powers milk 95 cows through two milking robots on their 43 ha dry, hilly farm.  On the day participants will be able to see the importance of cow trafficability to a system like this and how allocation of grass is the engine that drives it. Learn how to best utilise the robot to achieve maximum profit.  And hear how much labour is really saved in automatic milking systems.  With two of the three years of the AutoGrassMilk research project now completed, some of the research staff involved with this project will be available on the day to present and discuss some preliminary findings and answer questions.  This is an event not to be missed for anyone considering purchasing a robotic milking machine.
