A Kerry agri-tech company is teaming up with the software research centre at Science Foundation Ireland and the Institute of Technology in Tralee to develop dairy farm equipment, which will use Artificial Intelligence to boost milk yields while reducing the workload of farmers.

Dairymaster, which is based in Causeway, has won innovation awards all over the world and exports its equipment to more than 40 countries.

It was established in 1968 to install milking equipment as dairy farms moved from manual labour to mechanisation.

Today it is recognised as one of the worlds most innovative agriculture companies, manufacturing autonomous milking equipment and exporting it to countries such as the US, Russia, Japan, Germany and New Zealand.

Dairymaster’s ‘Moomonitor’ is worn by cows and takes three million readings per day.

These readings are processed in the cloud and results are sent to an app developed by Dairymaster.

CEO and innovator, Professor Edmond Harty today announced details of a €2 million research project to develop equipment to help the farmers of the future to increase their milk yields and incomes with less work.

He said artificial intelligence, wearable sensors, and embedded electronics could make diary farming easier and more sustainable.

Science Foundation Ireland is providing around €1m of the funding, through Lero, its software research centre.

Recruitment of eight scientists and engineers has already begun and they will join a team of more than 40 researchers at the Dairymaster plant.

Any claim arising from the information contained on the eDairy News website will be submitted to the jurisdiction of the Ordinary Courts of the First Judicial District of the Province of Córdoba, Argentine Republic, with a seat in the City of Córdoba, to the exclusion of any another jurisdiction, including the Federal.
