Farming in the Technology Age

I wanted to share this blog post from Housewives of Rural America with you! I have stated before that milking parlors come in various shapes and sizes. While the parlor on our farm milks 16 cows three times per day with one person, there are many other ways to milk a cow. In this video, you cans see how a robot works to milk a cow!

Farming is constantly changing and just like our cell phones are becoming more and more advanced daily so are the tools available on farms.  Almost a year ago my family’s dairy farm we installed some of this new age technology!

We milk our cows with robots.  The best part about this is our cows are consistently treated well by the robots, they can come in and milk as often as they want and we can feed them according to each cow’s individual needs.  Below, I included a video.  You can see the robot clean the cow’s teats and milk her!
