New robotic milking technology is promising to completing redesign farm layout and change farmer attitude. The Dexcel Greenfield Project, senior scientist Murray Woolford told the South Island Dairy Event, should be commercially viable within a few years,  Woolford explained that the new system being trialled is unique in that it is designed around a total farm, all-grass management system. It can also handle large numbers of cows, with large herds requiring several units strategically located around the farm.
