Milking Outside the Square

CowTime has looked at automatic (robotic) milking and once-a-day milking, two very different options which have been used successfully to address labour issues on some dairy farms.

Automatic milking and once-a-day milking are both very valid business propositions for some farms. What's important is that either option is well planned and not a knee jerk reaction to unexpected circumstances.
