VIDEO: Father and son future-proofing their 2-robot 170-cow farm

Conor Molony and his son, Niall, currently have over 170 cows on two Lely A5 robots just outside Thurles in Co. Tipperary.

According to Lely Center Mullingar, the duo are running some of the highest producing robots in Ireland.

The family dairy farmers made the change to robotic milking to reduce the labour requirements, to achieve a better work-life balance with more flexibility, and future-proof their business.

The family recently hosted a virtual open day in conjunction with Lely Center Mullingar to provide an insight into their journey over the past three years.
