Projects

Lockett Family herringbone conversion

Nestled in Neerim North about 40km from Warragul, Victoria, you’ll find the Lockett family. Their 90-hectare dairy farm was constructed around 100 years ago by Gordie Lockett’s Grandfather. Now with the addition of two Lely milking robots, it looks set to remain a Lockett family tradition...

Joyce Family herringbone conversion

The Joyces were considering getting out of dairy, as old football injuries and long hours on concrete in the dairy began taking their toll on Peter. Instead they decided to convert their 12 swingover herringbone into an automatic milking system with two A5 Lely robots, and now Peter says he'll be in dairy for a number of years more.

Williams Family replace rotary with robots

Grant and Leesa Williams began automating their dairy farm with Lely milking robots more than 13 years ago. In 2021 they installed an additional six robots and switched off their last remaining rotary, now milking over 600 cows with ten robots across two dairies.
