Robot milking and pasture grazing!

Can my cows continue to graze if I decide to milk with a robot? Yes, they can, if the size of the robot takes into account the time spent in the pastures, and if equipment such as sorting fences is installed to facilitate access. If you decide to milk with a robot, it doesn’t mean cows can no longer graze in a pasture. After all, it would be a waste not to exploit the accessible pasture area that keeps feed costs low and improves animal welfare. However, you do need to think carefully in advance about what milking system to choose, and the feeding details and method.
