Cappoquin Estate farm, home to the Tintur Holsteins herd, recently held an open day to showcase the five DeLaval V300 robotic milking machines recently installed on the farm. Big crowds turned out on the day to view the system in action.

The farm is not your conventional grass-based dairy operation, with high-yielding cows housed all-year-round. The decision to house the herd full-time was made in 2016.
