New in 2019, MilksmartPro is a workshop developed for rural professionals to help them understand and identify ways they can work with their clients to implement milking efficient strategies and improve processes on farm.
There is potential for significant savings in both time and money, delivering real, tangible benefits for the farm business.
Efficiency is not necessarily about milking faster or working harder – it’s about optimising the use of equipment and the people available, to create a system where cows, facilities and people work in balance.
To find out about upcoming workshops or how we can work with you and your team to improve your knowledge of milking efficiency, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
