Optimizing Nutrition, Housing and Management on Robotic Dairy Farms

The presentation covers topics relating to housing and management of robotic dairy farms and also some nutritional lessons learned in the field and from previous research in this area.

Robert Matson grew up on his family dairy farm in Ontario, Canada, before moving to Ottawa to complete his undergraduate degree in Biochemistry. Robert then completed his MSc. at the University of Guelph, conducting research on dairy health and production in herds using automated milking systems. Robert worked under the supervision of Dr. Trevor DeVries, with the goal to increase efficiency and production while improving the health and wellbeing of animals milked in these systems. Since defending his thesis, Robert has joined the Ruminant Nutrition team at Wallenstein Feed and Supply and is very interested in helping producers achieve their goals and production targets.
