Automatic Milking

The adoption of Automatic Milking impacts on all aspects of the farming option – it is not just a new way to milk cows.  Australian experience has shown that farmers who really do their homework prior to adopting AMS minimize any negative impacts on cow, herd or farm performance.  The following resources should help you to increase your understanding of AMS, be realistic about what can be achieved with AMS and consider different management options when you are farming with AMS.

“The resources developed by FutureDairy were invaluable to us as we transitioned from conventional milking to robotic milking – without the support of the team and access to the tools and resources they developed, we are sure that the transition would have been more challenging and would have taken longer.”

Case Studies

The following AMS labour case studies were prepared from a series of labour audits conducted on AMS farms in 2013/14. The case studies reflect each farm’s situation at that time. Like all farms, these operations have evolved since the time the case studies were prepared. Please read these case studies in this context. While they are a snapshot taken at a particularly time, these case studies demonstrate the potential impact of AMS on five farms who all invested in AMS with quite different objectives.
