As an international family business in the agriculture sector, we spend every day making producer’s lives easier with innovative solutions and tailored services. Our vision and the needs and demands of our clients are the things that drive and inspire us. 

The Canadian dairy industry is an extremely interesting place right now. It is undergoing growth, especially in the adaptation of dairy automation, which helps not only increase production but efficiencies as well. But the best thing is the people you get to work with in the dairy industry. They are a great group of people – hardworking, fun, and smart.  How can you not be excited to work with people like that?! The Canadian Dairy XPO allows us to continue to build relationships with our current customers as well as future customers. With the XPO’s commitment to providing a world class experience for dairy farmers to learn about new innovative products, we are proud to partner with CDX.

 I always claim that I have two millennia experience in robotic milking.  I’ve been at it since 1998 and started with Lely specifically 11 years ago..

Hammond Farms

A century old farm served by four generations of the Hammond family, Hammond Farms was ready for a parlor renovation when Glen Hammond and the rest of the family decided it was time to see if robotic milking would solve some of their challenges. Now as the family begins to prepare for the fifth generation of farm leadership, Glen says having robots will help make that future possible.
