With a desire to reduce feed and output costs, Hugh Harbison installed a 20/40 Switflo bailing with feed-to-yield feeders, ACRs and automatic drafting.
The farmer – based in Northern Ireland – said that his cows are calmer, milking time has reduced, yields have increased and he has a better lifestyle since its installation.
“It was taking one man 3 hours to milk the 120 cows; it was just a laborious task.”
“Now with the new milking parlour, it takes one man an hour-and-a-half to milk 170 cows.”
“It’s an easier, better job and a nicer way of life.” concluded Hugh.
