This excursion will provide our students and families with a unique experience of a Robotic Dairy. Scenic Rim Robotic Dairy are the manufacturers of 4Real Milk. This high quality milk is becoming more popular on our supermarket shelves due to their more natural milking methods and less interference with the milks natural goodness. 4Real Milk is Pasteurised but not Homogenised like the majority more common shelf milk.

So, how does a robotic milking system work?

The Lely robots are basically machines which have been built around the cow. The robotic system allows the cow to choose when she is milked. The cows are trained to enter the ‘robot’ by a placement of grain feed. Each cow has an electronic tag, which the robot ‘reads’ when the cow enters, she is given a reward of feed grain according to her level of production.

Cows choose when they want to be milked

Normally, all the cows are herded in to be milked at the same time, whether they are ready or not. With their robotic system, the cows can enter the robots when they are ready….it’s a much nicer way to do things! It also means that 'the girls' spend more time on the pasture, eating grass than they used to :)


BEAUDESSERT HISTORICAL MUSEUM

54 Brisbane St, Beaudessert

Time: 1:00 pm

Cost: $7 for adults (parents can pay on the day), $2 for students (this will be covered by the school). Any unenrolled siblings will need to be paid for by the parents.

The Historical Society of Beaudesert is helping to preserve the stories and legacies of our pioneers from the days of the Moreton Bay settlement to the present day.

Our vast collection provides an in-depth look at the development of transport and industry along with our early lifestyle. Students will gain an insight into where we came from pointing the way to our future.

Here is an example of the manuscripts that have been preserved. Many problems today would not be happening in our society if we kept to these "Good Ol Days Rules"!
