Robotic milking in dairy productions

A growing number of dairy producers choose robotic milking because of its various benefits. But purchasing a milking system represents a major investment that requires a complete understanding of each step of the project, from planning to dairy production optimization. 

Whether you are still considering a transition to robotic milking or have made your decision, we can guide you in all aspects of robotic milking in your dairy production before, during and after the system start-up.

Planning the start-up phase of your new robotic milking system

You’ve purchased your robotic milking system and you now need to prepare everything to start on the right foot. There’s so much to think about and you don’t know where to start and what to focus on.

Our robot advisors will develop a plan for you that will begin way before your system has arrived. Nothing will be neglected and we will guide you throughout this major change in your work practices: assessment of your cows and herd for the key success factors in robotic milking: reproductiontransitionSCCmilk production planning, lameness, feed strategies, compatibility of cows with the robot, advice for the start-up, and more. With proper planning, you have the best chance of getting optimal performance results.

Our advisors serve farms in Quebec and the Atlantic Provinces.

Milk sampler rentals and data transmission for milk recording using milking robots

Milking systems generate an impressive amount of data at every milking, but milk recording remains an essential management tool to maximize the return on your investment:

  • Robot Production & Efficency Report
  • Milk Components
  • SCC (5 reports)
  • Cow and bulk tank MUN
  • Ketolab/Ketosis/BHB
  • Transition Cow Index®
  • Genetic Herd Inventory
  • And much more!

Our services include sales and rentals of Ori-Collector auto-samplers for milk recording in robotic milking. Ori-Collector samplers are compatible with all automated milking systems.

Learn more about the different milk recording options adapted to the needs of robotic milking. 

To make your task easier, your technician will deliver the sampler, program it and collect the system data at each test. 

Recommendations on your building plans

A robotic milking project often goes hand in hand with the building or restoration of a barn. Whether it’s comfort, ergonomics and space, or work efficiency, every aspect deserves careful consideration. 

Our comfort and housing advisors have the expertise to help you review your plans and direct you towards the right choices according to your criteria and objectives.  

Dairy production optimization and management in robotic milking

Do you already own one or more milking systems and wish to optimize the system production, while controlling feed costs? Our robot advisors have the expertise required to help you reach your goals: 

  • Feed cost analysis and tracking
  • Advice on herd management in robotic milking
  • Herd performance tracking
  • Improving the efficiency of robotic milking
  • Strategy planning to get your premiums while improving your SCC
  • And much more!

Benchmarking is the key to improvement

If data is the foundation of a smart herd management, comparison with other similar farms is the key to improvement. By combining your milking system data with your milk recording data, our Performance and Feed – Robot report allows you to take a step back and compare yourself to other herds, for all brands of robotic milking systems.
