Event Time 11am - 1pm
Venue Farm of John Gilvarry, Lisglennon, Killala, Mayo, F26 A439
Teagasc Smarter Milking Event, in association with the Farm Relief Service (FRS), Animal Health Ireland and Aurivo

With herd size increasing and ever-larger milking units, the demands on the milker are growing. Working smarter can help. Teagasc, in association with the Farm Relief Service (FRS), Animal Health Ireland and the dairy co-ops, is running a series of Smarter Milking events across the country during July.

These events will outline how dairy farmers and their staff can implement techniques to enable a more efficient and safer milking process which delivers high quality milk and greater profit. Farmers will be able to discuss the milking system with the host farmers.

These events will focus on five aspects of the milking process:
1) Getting cows in and out (cow flow)
2) Milking technique (doing it right)
3) Producing high quality milk
4) Saving energy and money
5) Reducing time spent on milking
