New Automatic Milking Systems User Group for Wisconsin Dairy Producers

The University of Wisconsin-Madison Division of Extension created the Automatic Milking Systems (AMS) user group for dairy producers currently using AMS. The user group provides participants with opportunities to collaborate with peers, access expert guidance, contribute to research efforts, and improve farming practices, ultimately enhancing efficiency, productivity, and profitability on their dairy farms.

The group is facilitated by Douglas Reinemann from the University of Wisconsin Milking Research and Instruction Lab, and Carolina Pinzón, University of Wisconsin Extension Statewide Dairy Outreach specialist. 

The AMS User Group inaugural meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, April 9th, 2024, from 1 to 3:30 pm, offering both in-person (Wausau, WI) and virtual attendance options. Meetings will occur three times a year, with 10 to 20 AMS farms per meeting, held at various locations across Wisconsin, featuring optional AMS farm tours.
