I’m struggling to understand the point of it tbh. Would you not be better with a big parlour and forget about them when done . What would 14 robots not cost to install.

Yes my thoughts exactly. Dont know the farmer in question or what the motives are, my cousin told me theres another 4 robots being added to the original 14 before startup. Cant see it being much faster than a 14 point swinger in my opinion 🤷
