VIDEO: High output/high input fully indoor robotic unit

Derek O’Halleran from Co Longford began milking in spring 2020 with one Lely A5 robot as part of a high output/input system.

He opted for a fully indoor system with high yielding all-year-round calving cows. This was partly due to the fragmented nature of his land, which meant a grazing system was not an option.

He provided an insight into his venture into dairying as part of a virtual open day hosted by Lely Center Mullingar.
