The Frizzell Family enjoys high productivity from their Valleyville Farms operation – a 1600-acre farm near Glen Valley on Prince Edward Island, Canada. In 2014, they installed four BouMatic Robotics milking robots, two MR-D1 double box robots and two MR-S1 single box robots. The units were installed directly into their existing barn with little impact on the overall facility. The Frizzell Family point to the flexibility of schedule that comes with the robots as a major benefit. It frees them up so they no longer miss family events and personal pursuits beyond the dairy - something they are all grateful for!
The Toop Family Dairy Farm is experiencing great success with BouMatic Robotic's new camera-on-the-head technology.
Frans and Thecla are still clearly delighted with their decision to go with the MR-D1. With a smile, Thecla finishes: “I am still very proud that we were the first to have the machine in our barn. It was a major event at the time: in the beginning, everyone came to look at it. They arrived in bus-loads and we even had some interest from Canada and America. We even set up a visitor’s book at one point. It is a bit calmer now but it remains a beautiful device. A little miracle!”
At Gaec le Rocher they milk with a BouMatic Robotics MR-D1 milking robot since November 2017 and they are still absolutely convinved of their choice. "We have gained the quality of milking and quality of life!" Their choice was also guided by the low cost of maintenance, the proximity of their dealer as well as the - the "double gripper" system that fetches two cups to at the same time for increased efficiency and speed.
In the farthest outpost in the Netherlands, the Midwolda in Groningen, lives the Brink family: Han and Irma and their sons Jordy, Rick and Steffan . They man the farming company that they took over from Irma’s parents in 2001. Han, who grew up on a farm, runs the dairy section, helped by Irma who also takes care of the children and the runs the household. There is a real eye-catcher in the barn: the MR-D1™, or a double stall.
