In Tagori, Tasmania (Australia) the Finalysons family installed 4 Lely Astronaut A5 robots on their farm to cope with the ongoing labour issues and to increase the herd's productivity. Thanks to the automatic milking system, Hugh Finlaysons and his parents Alison and James Finlaysons are currently managing the farm by themselves. As per their experience, this system is the most cost-effective way of dairy farming.
Producing milk in cost-effective way
"People don't want to keep paying more money for food. We've got to find ways of producing food more cheaply. So this is one of the ways that we can do that by using the technology." - James Finlaysons
