Lely robot at Caerfai.

» Posted by on Apr 15, 2012 in The Farm, Uncategorized | 0 comments

We have been using the Lely robotic milking machine for just over a year now.  Each cow wears a collar which identifies them – the robot detects whether they need milking or not.  It also holds their personal info (their weight, how old they are, their body stats!) The cows get a good feed whilst they are being milked. Graham (the herdsman) and Dad get a detailed account of how much milk each cow is producing.

A time-lapse film of the cows in action…
