There are 300 cows at Freunds Farm that provide over 2,500 gallons of milk, 365 days of the year. The milk is picked up every day and delivered to nearby processing plants for making into butter, cheese and fluid drinking milk and sold locally in the Northeast.
A little more about Freunds Farm; their dairy farm is the first in the state of Connecticut to install a robotic milking system. Beginning in March 2016, the cows now choose their milking routine using the 5 Lely Astronaut robots. Their cows visit the robot on average 3 times/day with each visit taking approximately 7 minutes. Each cow spends just 21 minutes/day being milked with the remainder of her time spent lying, eating and socializing.
