NDC Presentations - New Technology
"People (at the conference) are excited about adopting to a changing environment with a focus on efficiency and lifestyle outcomes, rather than complaining about change", and this is what looking at new technological options are all about.
Matthew Cahill, Simon Scowen and Greg Dennis took us on their journey through “the good, the bad and the ugly” of transitioning to an Automated Milking System. They each have an AMS, of varying constructs, which they have adopted and adapted to meet their own needs.
New technology is not always a silver bullet, you must look at the options and work out whether or not it is for you, and then make the decision.
This is exactly what Scott Menkins and Paul Roderick outlined upon their return from the DEEDI, DA and Subtropical funded “freestall barn” visit to the USA.
