Milking from the armchair – fact or fiction?

dairy-rotaryThis May, pull on your boots for Murray Dairy’s inaugural industry event, The Murray Muster.

Over two days and one night, hear from Australian and international guest speakers with new research and rigorous discussion on Automation, Consumers & Climate.

The Murray Muster 2019 will get you thinking about what comes next for the dairy industry in the Murray region.

The program on May 22 at Dookie College Dairy focuses on milking from the armchair – fact or fiction?

Ever considered an Automated Milking System (AMS)? Get real information on the potential of this technology from the Milking Edge team and current operators, with a decade of research, data and analysis from commercial farms across Australia.

Milking Edge is a three-year project to support farmers to optimise the use of AMS.

At the Murray Muster 2019, the Milking Edge team will share their findings on the essentials of successful AMS farming and the major differences between conventional and robotic milking systems. They will also present an analysis of performance and economic data collected from current AMS farms in Australia and overseas.

Join Russ Hovey, Professor at the University of California, to have a close look at the udder to better understand mammary function and development, and improve the prevention and management of related health issues in your herd.

Russ will perform a dissection of the udder so you can see what goes on inside and out.

Professor Hovey’s work examines how the mammary glands respond to hormonal signals during growth, lactation or in the case of breast cancer, in particular estrogen, progesterone and prolactin. His work also looks at the effects of diet and lifestyle on tissue function.

Find out about practical changes you can make to improve animal health and productivity from day one, with benefits that continue to pay off over years.

Dairy Australia’s leadership team including Chair, Jeff Odgers and Managing Director, David Nation, will highlight some of the industry’s current projects and the possibilities these present for dairy farmers and businesses in the Murray region.

Hear about what Dairy Australia is doing in the areas of: research, extension, trade, strategy and promotion to enhance the dairy industry in Australia.

This is an opportunity to catch up with the leadership team and ask them your questions.
