Automatic Milking Systems Tours Feature Precision Management

AMES, Iowa – The number of automatic milking systems used in dairy operations continues to increase with over five percent of farms now milking with robots.

The Iowa State University Extension and Outreach dairy team will present a first-hand look at how fellow dairy farmers are managing automatic milking systems in new or retrofit facilities. Areas of focus will be facilities, economics and overall management of automatic milking systems.

Nine dairy facilities in northeast and eastern Iowa will be visited as a part of the tour. Two sites will be visited each day on October 23, November 5, November 13, and three sites on November 14.
