Testimonials

Barton Family, Lancashire 1x Discovery Collector

‘Twelve months on from investing in the Discovery 120 Collector, Chris Barton says: “This robot is doing a cracking job; its working round the clock keeping the shed cleaner, so we’ve cleaner cows 24/7. In fact, it’s the one bit of kit I couldn’t do with out and what’s more, it is scheduled to pay for itself within five years.’

Bowe Family, Cumbria 2x A5 Robotic Milking Systems

‘Investing in two A5’s robotic milking systems is helping Will and Nicola Bowe to achieve their business goals and have a family life. “We’re about making this business more efficient. We take great pride in what we do, we’re striving to be the best,” says Nicola. So far success is reflected in their 105-cow commercial herd’s performance. “Yield has improved by 50% to an average 11,500 litres, whilst maintaining solids. We have a lot fewer health issues, and the vet bill has been cut by 30%.”’

Findlay family, Cumbria 2x A5 Robotic Milking Systems

‘Mac Findlay says the future of the family’s 120 cow dairy enterprise depended on its decision to invest in a robotic milking system with the continued ability to graze. “Dad and myself had battled for years over swapping our herringbone parlour for robots; and it came down to being a case of I’d stay on the farm, if we were prepared to embrace technology. We finally did, and we’d now say it's the best things that’s happened on this farm.”’

Hutchinson family, North Yorkshire 2x A3 Robotic Milking Systems

‘Returning from college over a decade ago, Sam Hutchinson says the unit needed a new parlour and amongst the options were milking robots. “They provided the opportunity to improve our lifestyle and offer a lift in milk yield. But we knew we could only consider robots if we could continue to graze. We manage an organic unit supplying OMSCo and our ethos is to graze outside as much as possible which also fits with our sales contract.’

Rab Family, York 1x Juno Flex

‘Ben Rab says his Juno feed pusher is one of the most indispensable pieces of kit on the farm. “It’s guaranteed 24/7 to keep fresh feed in front of the cows, it consistently keeps working and it’s contributing to an extra one litre per head per day. In fact, it’s a no brainer; the Juno is a relatively simple piece of kit that’s cost effective to buy and we reckon that extra yield covered will cover its the cost within 18 months.’

Rae Family, Dumfries 2x A3 & 2x A4 Robotic Milking Systems

‘The Rae family was amongst the first in their region to introduce milking robots a decade ago. “We installed two Lely Astronaut A3 automatic milking systems back in 2011 and then carried on milking the rest of the cows through the parlour,” Alan explains. “Four years later, such was our confidence in the robots that we decided to invest in another two and milk the entire herd through the automated system.”’
