Welcome podcast

The challenges and satisfactions of dairy farming in Australasia are unique in comparison to the rest of the world. To showoff how one-of-a-kind our farmers and dairy-regions are, we have decided to kickoff an exciting initiative, a podcast we call: The Dairy Experience


Did you know that? 

  • We have about 1,3 million dairy cows in Australia.
  • We have about 4,9 million dairy cows in New Zealand.
  • We have about 4.420 dairy farms in Australia.
  • We have about 11.000 dairy farms in New Zealand.
  • About 83 farms are milking through an automatic milking machine in Australasia.
  • This number is rapidly increasing every year.

The Dairy Experience


With The Dairy Experience podcast we would love to:

  • Have some entertaining, thought-provoking discussions about dairy farming in Australia and New Zealand.
  • Invite farmers, feed advisors, veterinarians and other relevant people from our sector to participate in our podcast and exchange interesting points of views.
  • Tell the stories of farmers.

Automatic milking

something for you?

More flexibility, freedom of choice for yourself and your cows while being animal friendly, work efficiently and controlling costs. 

Automatic milking introduces a new routine on your farm, providing greater flexibility, enhanced efficiency, and a better work-life balance. It also allows your cows to follow their own rhythm at all times.
