One of the largest VMS V300 robotic milking systems in Europe has been installed on a Co Waterford estate.

The five-unit Delaval milking system, designed to automate the milking of up to 400 cows on Tintur Farm is one of the first of its kind to be commissioned on an Irish dairy farm.

Linked to cloud-based computer technology, installed on the farm by World Wide Sires, each cow in the herd is individually monitored and controlled every minute of the day by the central computer base, providing an advanced data of information.
