Well over 200 people visited the Frederic Farm Open House, at Jessup’s Falls near Plantagenet, in January, to take a look at the robots, which were installed in 2016. The 2007-built barn in the background is completely automated – with three Milkomax Tie-Stall AMS robot milkers, a Robivec Dec for feeding, an automated manure compost separator, and has computerized weather monitors to control fans and windows. The farm is owned by Luc Fredette.      Vetter photo
