Juno....

This is Juno in action - our automatic feed pusher. Juno goes back and forth at regular intervals along the feed alley to push any feed back in that the cows have pushed out. Before Juno this was a job that was done by staff.

When you visit you may see Juno in action or docked near the front of the Main Dairy Barn. Also look for red strips of metal sunk into the cement floor - these markings are what Juno uses to navigate the space.

And last but not least you can see through to the solar panels on the heifer barn beside the Main Dairy Barn.

Flexible Feeding Fence

Quick video that shows the flexible feeding fence in our Main Dairy Barn.

When the cows push against it, and it tilts, this not only reduces the amount of pressure on their shoulders, but varies the pressure points. This eliminates shoulder injuries.

It also allows for natural head and neck movements. For example, when you visit you may see a few of our cows who like to flick the feed up over their backs. We would prefer of course that they eat it, but this fence does allow for a variety of movements while they eat.

Voluntary Milking System demonstration...

We use a Lely Voluntary Milking System at our farm. Here is a short 3 minute video to show one of our cows being milked.

Some things to watch for...
- The exit of the cow, and how another cow is lined up and interested to enter next.
- The cows are motivated to be milked because they receive a feed treat when they enter.
- When they enter the system identifies which cow it is by the transponder on their collar.
- You'll see the cows head go down to eat from the feeding area once she enters.
- Next the robot cleans the cows teats, and then uses a laser to guide the milk cups to her teats for milking.

We'll post another video below from Lely that also does a nice job of describing the process.

When you are visiting the farm you will see that we have 2 Lely milking stations. The one closest to the feed alley is the easiest to watch. You are welcome to peak in through the milking room door to take a look, or to watch from the feed alley. If the stations are not being used it may be that they are in a cleaning phase. Drop by again in approximately 15 minutes.

Four years ago I brought my Grandchildren to M.O.D. just before they moved to NFLD. They are back for a few weeks to visit and they asked to go back to the farm again. So today, four years later to the day, we were back at M.O.D. to see the animals.
I would love to see you sweeten an ice cream flavour with stevia or swerve to make it sugar free, low carb, keto friendly, and diabetic friendly. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Just a thought! ๐Ÿฆ
