Gone are the days when farmers had to milk their cows manually. Today more and more farms are adopting robotic milking machines which handle the whole milking process. The development of automatic milking machines means that a robot, in cooperation with a computer, carries out the daily milking of the cows.

For the end consumer, obtaining milk that is clean and free of harmful bacteria is a must. But how can modern dairy farms ensure that high standards of hygiene are upheld? Using innovative techniques and high quality milking machinery is one thing; day to day administration is another. The milk must be tested and analyzed regularly.

While it is still possible to bring in a bull to inseminate cows, today’s farmers generally rely on artificial insemination (AI) for the reproduction of their cattle. There are many reasons why artificial cow insemination is preferred. First and foremost is that it makes it much easier, and less costly, to inseminate a large number of cows.

Green, sustainable, biologic, organic etc. etc.
But of course, - we all want these! – Or not…..Can we even agree on the definitions??
You hear VERY strong opinions for and against, yet, it is unclear what exactly people are for or against. Especially the word “sustainable”…..

Warning: This is NOT objective and skewed towards the commercial interests of Afimilk!
I’m told that for people, the above statement is without doubt true. Whether or not this is so for cows is debatable – different kind of grass ;-)

Well, well……What could Afimilk possibly have to say that would interest YOU and the world? Probably not much, but I feel that some of what we hear and see globally, just might contribute to your overall understanding of our weird dairy Universe. If you disagree, you really should stop reading right here and now ;-)
