Excursion: Wynyard’s Robo-Cows

When: Monday, October 7 – 10:00 to noon (1 session)

Where: 29 Robin Hill Road, Flowerdale

Presenter: Simon Elphinstone

Imagine 225 cows going into the dairy and milking themselves. This what the cows do at Simon Elphinstone’s robotic dairy at Flowerdale. There is no set starting or finishing time for milking; the cows have 24 hours each day to decide when they want to be milked. Join this excursion to learn about yet another innovative business in the Wynyard Municipality. No special PPE requirements but sturdy footwear would be best. Depending on the weather there may be some mud about. There is plenty of room to park in front of the dairy 

Allow 20 minutes travel time.
