With two new robots milking their 130 cows, and a third due to be installed early next year, the Marsh family from Gloucestershire has broken free from the monotony of twice daily milking, and at the same time seen an improvement in milk yields.

Chris Marsh farms with his parents, Dennis and Angela, near Wotton-under-Edge in Gloucestershire where they own and rent a total of 293 acres.  They moved to the farm 13 years ago, bringing with them a herd of 60 cows which has subsequently grown to 130, calving all year round.
