DemoDAIRY Foundation’s articles about extended milking intervals have prompted a lot of discussion.
As a result of the publicity, at least one south-west farmer has started a 10/7 milking model and others are further considering EMI opportunities.
DDF has played an important role in stimulating these discussions and will continue to provide information to farmers who have expressed in EMI.
Meanwhile, flexible milking hours continue to gain traction in New Zealand.
The latest edition of Inside Dairy is all about EMI/Flexible milking, highlighting the better working hours and better herd health.
