Join us for a Dairy Tour with a difference.
A Tour of the Scenic Rim Robotic Dairy is a unique and fascinating experience. One of the longest running dairies in the area, the Dennis family begins the tour with a discussion of the way things were done in the 1930s.
You’ll be led through the different stages of milking, including the introduction of machine milking in the 1940s with the introduction of electricity and the current high tech LELY Robotic milking system.
For those who can remember milk being delivered to their doorstep… Older people absolutely love the tour, because it takes them back through the whole history of dairy farming. They reminisce about the days of the horse and cart, how milk arrived in glass bottles fresh and cold. They go through each development in dairy farming. People are fascinated by the Robotic milking system – and they love seeing how the cows take to it so easily.
It’s a great day out in the country – and the Scenic Rim is such a beautiful part of the world!
