Executive director of the Global Dairy Platform, Donald Moore, recently told an Australian audience that the biggest future threat to the world dairy industry could be synthetic milk.
Recent milking time visits to a number of different dairy sheds have reminded me that “normal” means different things to different people.
It is only a tiny part of your milking plant, and it can sometimes be very unobtrusively placed, but it is critical to the ability of your milking plant to function correctly.
Russell and Stuart both manage family farms milking about 450 cows in a rotary dairy without automatic cup removers.
WITH only 37 systems currently operating across the country, Australian dairy still has a while to go before automatic milking systems are mainstream.
