Technology and automation are playing an increasing role in the dairy industry. The University of Wisconsin Madison Division of Extension and DeLaval are co-hosting a robotic milking systems tour and open house on Tuesday, April 11, at Neu-View Acres. The Neumann family will be giving a small presentation about their decision to retrofit robotic milking to their existing barn, how they planned and executed their start up, and the impacts automation and data collection has had on their herd. Attendees will then be able to tour the milking herd and facility, with industry experts available throughout the barn to answer questions.
- Two DeLaval robotic units installed December 2022, with two more due to be installed in May 2023
- Farm history & why the Neumann’s chose robots
- Guided tour of Robotic Milking & Cow Housing
Don’t miss out on this wonderful opportunity to connect with others in the dairy industry, learn about designing for robotic milking installation, and hear how one of our local farms is managing the transition from stall barn to robotic milking.
This event will be held on Tuesday, April 11 from 10am-11:30am at Neu-View Acres (2250 5th Ave, New Richmond, WI)
