Following the successful installation of the DeLaval VMS system at Lackham College, we were pleased to receive some great feedback from Farm Manager Phil Steans recently. “The cows are all milking well, quieter and faster than expected,” he said. “It’s a brilliant system, the process is outstanding and the robots phenomenal to watch. The cows are really taking well to the new system and the analytics are mind-blowing. Thank you T H WHITE!”
A further VMS unit has arrived on-site at Lackham and will shortly be installed as part of the new educational dairy facility which is enabling Wiltshire College and University Centre to offer a brand new University Level Dairy Engineering course for students aged 18 and over. The HNC and HND programmes are available either part-time or full-time across 1 or 2 years and will feature study into Livestock Production and Management; Technology, Automation and Robotics; Animal Genetics and Husbandry and Business Management & Accounting.
