Build labour efficiency into new facilities

When extending your dairy farming operations it is important to incorporate labour efficiency  into the design.  Globally, large dairies account for the majority of the growth in the dairy sector. Increased efficiency and profitability go hand in hand with larger farming operations.

Bad layout of facilities can lead to bottlenecks and  inefficient use of time and labour. Jones says: “With no plan, the facilities will dictate management. Dairy facilities are tools. They are tools that let you implement your plan”. For a useful labour plan, click HERE.
