Local Information Meetings to Discuss Dairy Parlor Options
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. And, even robots can be pretty cost competitive economically to producers milking in stall barns or old outdated parlors.
Join the ISU Extension and Outreach Dairy Team as they discuss issues surrounding robotic milking and low-cost parlor systems. Larry Tranel and Jenn Bentley, Extension Dairy Specialists will discuss financial and cash flow impacts of AMS and LCP systems along with production and management concerns.
Three meetings have been scheduled in northeast Iowa: Dec. 3, at the Postville YMCA Community Room; Dec. 6, at Neuman’s Bar and Grill in Holy Cross; Dec. 7, at the Oelwein Public Library. All locations will hold discussion from 10:00 am – Noon on Automatic Milking Systems and from 1:00 – 3:00 pm discussion on Low Cost Parlor Systems.
This informational meeting is sponsored by Iowa State University Extension and Outreach and the North Central Risk Management Education Center. For more information contact Jenn Bentley at email@example.com, 563-382-2949 or Larry Tranel at firstname.lastname@example.org, 563-583-6496.
