Queensland's First Robotic Dairy Starts Milking

28 April 2009

AUSTRALIA - Queensland's first robotic dairy started milking today on an Atherton Tablelands farm.

Millaa Millaa dairy farmer Alan Baldey is the second farmer in Australia to install robotic milkers, in a move which could save him $200,000 a year in reduced labour and energy costs, reports ABCRural.

Mr Baldey says the robots will reduce stress on his cows, helping them produce more milk, more often.
