Finland: automatic milking farms – figures

In Finland ultimo 2020, automatic milking farms accounted for 21 percent (2019: 20%) of all dairy farms. On automatic milking farms both cell and bacterial counts in milk were higher on average than on farms using traditional milking. In 2020 the geometric mean of cell counts in automated milking farms was 168000 cells/ml and the geometric mean of bacterial counts was 8100 cfu/ml. The size of the farm partly explains the differences between the cell numbers of automatic and traditional milking, but the differences in bacterial counts are bigger in automatic milking farms regardless of farm size.
