Our new 21st Century Robot Milking Shed, introduced Summer 2016.
Cows now milk themselves as they wish, no more queing up at the milking parlour.
Food is delivered by machine and waste products are removed by machine.
The cows even have mattresses to lie on.

A view of Higher Elms farm house and buildings from the canal. At milking time we see the cows waiting patiently outside the milking parlour, the more timid cows tend to wait until last.

Farmhouse from canal Milking Time

To the right of the farm lies the Shropshire Union Canal, the farm house and buildings are situated on high ground. To the left the land runs down to the river Weaver where a wide variety of wildlife can be observed throughout the year.

Here we see Brian milking the large herd of cattle, a three hour job, twice a day, morning and evening, seven days a week. On a hot day it becomes rather warm in that pit. A large tractor used for ploughing and other heavy jobs, four wheel drive is standard nowadays.

Brian Milking the Cows High Powered Ploughing Tractor

In the winter the cattle are housed in large sheds to the rear of the farmstead and do not go on to the fields. While the cows are being milked in the parlour the sheds are cleaned out at high speed by tractor mounted scrapers.
