Rob Thornton works on his family’s dairy farm with his parents Richard and Janette. They installed the ADF InVent system at Heathtolt Farm, Horsham, in November 2021 to save labour and as an aid to produce top quality milk.

“We’ve seen a time saving of 20-30 minutes of milking and somatic cell count has dropped from 120,000 to 80,000,” explains Rob. “The cows are much happier when they’re being milked with less kicks offs. Less pressure on the teat means that teat condition has massively improved. Within just two weeks of having ADF InVent installed we noticed a difference.”
