FRS Training: Best Practice in Milking

Attracta Dooley from FRS Training and Chloe Walsh, a secondary school teacher who helps her husband Pat on their farm outside Durrow in Co. Laois, join Stuart Childs on this week’s Dairy Edge podcast to talk about the upcoming FRS Training Best Practice in Milking Courses.

For Chloe, she wanted to learn more about the whole milking process which was her incentive to complete the course in October of last year. While she already knew how to milk, she says the course gave her much greater confidence in what she was doing, taught her skills that she didn’t have beforehand and has also helped her when it comes to training people who are new to their farm when they arrive. 

Attracta and Chloe both agree that there is no shortage of work on dairy farms milking cows for people that are interested and that contrary to people’s perceptions, it is quite flexible work. There is also great earning potential for people who are willing to do it.

Finally, Attracta details the dates of the upcoming courses, which commence on May 22 in Pallaskenry Agricultural College, and gives details of how to book. Booking details are available on the FRS website.
