Learn more about the farm
Jason Mitchell decided to go robotic milking to help improve efficiency and work environment on his farm. With a lot of planning and visits to different farms (even in different countries) Jason decided to install 6 VMS classics in March 2018. With a brand new shed built specifically for the robots. Jason quickly seen then benefits from increased production and a more sustained lactation curve on his cows. When the VMS V300 was launched last year Jason decided to retrofit 2 V300’s in to an existing shed on the farm. So approx. 500cows milking on the robots and 140 still being milked x2/day on the rotary parlour.
