The ExtensionAUS Automatic Milking Systems Community of Practice is an information and networking platform for the three year project known as Milking Edge.

Milking Edge is a joint initiative of the NSW Department of Primary Industries, Dairy Australia and DeLaval, to ‘Support industry to invest and operate AMS successfully’.

Built on a decade of successful research and development led by FutureDairy, as well as the experience of commercial AMS farms who invested in the technology, the project will enable better decision-making around the consideration, purchase and implementation of AMS.

The AMS Community of Practice will bring together passionate and knowledgeable industry  experts (such as farmers, advisors, service providers and researchers) from all around the world. The community will collaborate and share knowledge, research and solutions for farmers and service providers on all aspects of AMS farming. Some examples include technical articles, farmer case studies, videos, webinars and a dedicated newsletter.
