So, cows are a major source of methane but how do you measure how much gas a cow burps?
Is a robotic milking system an option for your farm? According to DairyNZ it depends on many factors.
The University of Auckland is leading a collaborative project to build multi-purpose robotic systems for orchards.
A new device which combines robotics, mechanics and chemistry is set to hit the market to combat one of the biggest problems on dairy farms – nitrogen leaching from cow urine patches.
THE OWNERS of the world’s largest robotic farm under one roof, Aad and Wilma van Leeuwen, say they were particularly attracted to the DeLaval robotic milkers due to the Herd Navigator technology.
A NEW robotic milker from GEA Farm Technologies WestfaliaSurge will have technology not seen before on robotic systems, including a specially developed 3D camera.
LABOUR SHORTAGES and the need to boost productivity and sustainability may be tipping points for demand for robotic milking systems in the southern hemisphere, says DeLaval’s Oceania market development manager, Mark Smith.
