Robotics Demonstration

World renowned robotic manufacturer Lely will once again be bringing their technical robotic demonstration to Dairy-Tech in February.  This feature will showcase live robotic milking demonstrations taking place throughout the day.  Lely representatives will be on hand to answer any queries and explain exactly how this new and ever evolving technology works to improve efficiency on your farm.

The demonstration will provide a unique opportunity for all dairy farmers to see the very latest in robotic milking technology, whilst an area displaying a wide array of additional robotic equipment will complement the demostrations.

With robotics now accounting for over one third of new parlour installations and scheduled to take an even bigger market share, the need for such a demostration is ever increasing given their popularity.  It will also be an area that those dairy farmers still weighing up their options of introuducing and using robots to milk may find useful in making an informed decision on the matter.

Cutting edge tools and technology are what Dairy-Tech is all about; focusing on the science and technology of these could offer potential solutions for dairy farming in the future.  In line with this we will be exploring the capabilities of drones and their potential to monitor welfare and fertility in dairy farming. 

With the likely possibility that drones are going to become key in all aspects of agriculture, including dairy farming, we will be showcasing a drone arena where we will investigate the use of drones further and which models are best for what purposes.

Visitors will be able to see the latest drone models to the market in our outside arena where there is the opportunity for flying.  Back inside the event we will be explaining exactly how they can be used in dairying, with particular focus going to their mapping capabilities.  There will be a session on mapping processes in our seminar area where visitors will be able to learn more about the technicalities of mapping, using Stoneleigh Park as an example.
