We started milking with our LELY automated system yesterday evening at 4:30p.m. and at 4:00 a.m. we had put all 61 cows through the robot once. There is a big learning curve, but the calmness of our cows has been commented on by the LELY trainees. It is exciting. The barn has fit well into our existing exercise yard for the cows. Its a 24/3 training session, then we can see how it goes on their own on the 4th day.
Lots of people came to check it out, and our son's friends came to help with the night shift. This morning Margie is back out at the robot. I am going to haul chopper wagons home today, 15 trips of 6 miles each!
I cannot seem to load photos today, it is taking way too long to upload to this site. Will try later.
