Owned by Agricola Ancali and part of the Bethia Group, the dairy farm already works with 16 VMS milk robots.
Installed in October 2014, the first eight were used to milk 500 cows. After comparing the benefits with the farm’s existing four rotary parlours, they realised it was not only possible to improve milk production by 10%, but also reduce labour costs and cow stress.
Around 4,500 cows will be milked by the 64 milk robots. El Fundo Risquillo is located 500km south of Santiago and is part of a larger operation including a beef farming operation and a stud farm.
