Lallemand Animal Nutrition educates Japanese dairy farmers on smart milking

Lallemand-Biotech organized a one week dairy educational seminar tour in Japan from 5th to 9th February with the contribution of international experts Mr. William Woodley, Canadian dairy consultant and Mr. Laurent Dussert Ruminant Category Manager Lallemand Animal Nutrition. This  was also the opportunity to promote synergic solutions for cow health (natural antioxidant combo) and cow digestive comfort (probiotics).

At the time of automatism, there is great interest in using automatic milking systems (AMS) in dairy herds, with objectives of reduced workload, higher milk production, and respect of cow welfare. Canada, for exmaple, counts 1000 farms equipped with AMS and 400 farms in Japan today. At a time when smart farming and big data can revolutionize animal management, milking robots supply cow-related information unobtainable in a conventional situation. This can help farm management and optimization.

This tour was made possible by Lallemand’s partnership networks with several dairy groups. Such initiatives affirm Lallemand Animal Nutrition position as a dairy expert in Japan with leading farmers, major feed millers, and several Agricultural Cooperatives.
