Robot Grazing Systems & Forage Harvesting
Wednesday, July 25, 2018 - 10:30am to 2:30pm
Grazing systems for farms using robots require a completely different design when compared to farms milking in a tie stall or parlor. Join CROPP/Organic Valley staff veterinarian and grazing specialist Dr. Greg Brickner and grazing consultant Sarah Flack on a tour of the Lambert’s farm, taking a look at their robotic milking system and pastures. The Lamberts’ will share how they have changed their pasture management system with the installation of robots. We will also discuss forage harvesting- looking at management strategies for producing high quality forage and organic corn silage.
