Robotic dairy tour attracts 50 participants to Onondaga County farm.
Fabius, NY. They came all the way from Booneville, NY to see this. Robotic milking. Two years ago Tom Trinder installed a robotic milking system at his farm in Fabius with great results. The robots are only part of the story at Trinder Farms. The rest of the story involves computer gateway pasturing, organic farming and, wind power.
Participants got a full tour of Trinder’s farming system that exemplifies sustainable agriculture and how a small dairy can flourish economically.
Some of the benefits of the robotic milking and computer grazing system have been higher milk production, cow longevity and very low veterinarian bills. The benefits to being organic have been a premium price for Trinder Farm milk, eliminating pesticide exposure to his employees and neighbors and, the return of earth worms to his fields.
The tour was organized by CCE Onondaga County Agriculture Educator Erin Hull and supported by Onondaga County.
