VIDEO: Milking over 90 cows in 20-unit parlour

Eddie Walsh runs a 92-cow herd, which consists mainly of British Friesians, in partnership with his parents, John and Ann.

The family, who has been dairy farming in Knocktopher since 1978, installed a Dairymaster 20-unit Swiftflo Swing Parlour two years, with a view to milking six rows of cows.

Eddie, who worked as a motor mechanic before becoming a full-time farmer, explained they added swiftflo bailing, ACRs, commanders, diversion line and drafting and “haven’t looked back”.

“It is a joy milking now, more so than a chore and that is why we went with it.” he added.
