Concentrate supply in grazing-based automatic milking systems

Fernando Diaz

Automatic milking is very popular in intensive dairy production systems. The adoption of robotic milking in grazing-based systems is uncommon; however, recent research from New Zealand, Australia, and Ireland is showing that this technology can be implemented in these countries where grazing is a critical part of the production system. Longer distance to the robot makes the cows less motivated to go for milking, therefore, concentrate supply during milking plays a key role for attracting cows.
