    Expectation's of relief milkers

    The biggest problem I had with relief milking is this Farmer says job is 5- 9 am 3-6 PM and then the job hours are increased Secondly relief doesn't live on site and could have an hours driving a day which the farmer has to pay for

    But how long will the bots last before there obsolete or they stop software updates We here alot about people taking out old models to put in new models, is this factored in to the cost and when would this happen(years) The swing over I milk in could last til a time that the steelworks rust away

    Cows coughing.

    I had problems with milking cows with lungworm probably 15 years ago ,coughing , milk drop etc I then sat down with a vet and sorted a proper worming regime to build up immunity as calves and then as r2s and never saw it again
