CowSignals asks farmers to question what cows want and how well he/she is meeting those needs. A good robot farm provides exactly want a cow wants, just when she wants it and in a stress-free way. Then she will visit the robot frequently, voluntarily and happily, paying back the farmer with her valuable milk.
This webinar will take a look at what makes a good robot farm, using CowSignals principles and an understanding of cow behaviour. It will be particularly relevant to farmers who are already milking with robots or who are exploring this option. However, all dairy farmers will find it interesting.
