Southern Star Farms

Run by Jo Crack, is a 360-cow dairy farm located near the Waituna Lagoon in Southland that currently milks with four A5 Astronaut Milking Robots. Her beloved Jersey cows enjoy the freedom to come and go to the robots as they please and Joanne enjoys the freedom of not being tied to the milking shed twice a day.

The data provided by the robots for every cow, at every milking, helps Joanne make the vital decisions to keep her herd healthy and productive.

‘If we hadn't put in the robot we wouldn't be dairy farming now. Robots have given us freedom and taken the stress away. It's an entirely different lifestyle and are user-friendly for the next generation.’

Pasture based automated milking

Perfectly suited to pastoral milking systems just like we have here, automating your milking means less labour costs and leads to more efficient milk extraction and animal knowledge.
