VIDEO: 12-robot farm with 720 dairy cows

12-robot farm in the US

Horsens Homestead Farms of Cecil, Wisconsin, made the switch to robotic dairying in December 2019.

The Horsens now milk approximately 720 cows with 12 Lely Astronaut A5 robotic milking systems and have two Lely Juno automatic feed pushers.

Since the transition to Lely automation, the Horsens have seen improvements in energy corrected milk, somatic cell count and more.

In this video, Join Ryan Horsens provides a virtual tour of his family-run large-scale dairy enterprise in the US.
