Alex Steeneveld - Herd Manager

Find out why Alex Steeneveld decided to install the ADF System and what benefits it has brought to the milking parlour at Highfield Farm.


“We decided to install the ADF System so that we could go back down to having 2 people in the parlour during milking and for labour efficiency. We installed the system in June 2019 and we’ve already gone from having 3 people in the dairy down to 2 when milking our herd of 240 cows. Having the ADF System has made milking more efficient and we’ll definitely be saving in labour costs in the long run. It’s an added benefit that the cows are getting dipped without delay. Somatic cell count is getting better too. It’s hard to say exactly as it is early days but it’s definitely heading in the right direction.”
