Title:
Workshop Series: Low Cost Parlors and Robotic Milking Systems

Date/Time:

  • 12/07/2012 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM

Description:
Many Iowa producers are only achieving 22-35 cows per person per hour in milking labor efficiency. Low cost parlors are allowing producers to double milking labor efficiency while achieving a safer, more pleasant and ergonomically correct way to milk cows. Producers who are considering a change in milking systems should take advantage of the informational meetings. Dairy Specialists will discuss financial and cash flow impacts of Automatic Milking Systems and Low Cost Parlor Systems along with production and management concerns. Automatic Milking Systems will be discussed in the 10 am - Noon session and Low Cost Parlor Systems will be discussed during the 1-3 pm session.
