Robotics and Sensors on the Farm
In 1917, John Daysh, a New Zealand dairy farmer, patented the first commercially viable milking machine. A hundred years of innovation in dairying has since led to parlor milking, automated feeding and pedometry for heat detection. The last 20 years have seen an explosion of new developments, such as robotic milking and feeding systems as well as sensor-based health and activity monitoring tools that are revolutionizing how dairying is done around the world. Are we ready to embrace the inevitable change as today's farm goes robotic? How will you implement the next idea? Learn how to prepare today for the technology of tomorrow.
