Producing 11,000 litres using six Lely Austronauts

Virtual Open Day on Ultimo Farms, run by McAleece family in Coagh

Paul Mc Aleece runs the Ultimo farm with his father Bertie and herds man Colin Givans, they milk the 360 cow herd through six Lely Astronaut A5 milking robots. The farm also uses Discovery slat scrapers and Coxmix out of parlour feeders to improve hygiene and feed accuracy. Since changing from their old parlour to Lely Astronauts their average yield has increased from 9700  litres to near 11000 litres, using the six Lely Astronauts. The feed rate has also reduced slightly to 0.34-0.35kg per ltr. The event will feature pre-recorded footage from the farm with Paul and Colin plus interviews from Philip Abenerthy, Parklands, David Mawhinney from Key Nutrition and Maurice Wylie, Farm Management Support LC Eglish. These will give an insight to how this has been achieved and will be followed by live Q&A's.
