Association of Robotic Milkers (ARM)

Formed as part of the Foundation for Collaboration, ARM is a new group specifically for dairy farmers using robotic milking systems.

The group aims to provide a network for robotic users via a members only forum. This online forum is the best place to discuss the latest equipment, ask questions and meet others using this new technology. Access to the forum is only granted to ARM Members ensuring that it is up to date, unbiased and informative. 


Membership runs on an annual basis from January to December and is administered through RABDF. The cost of membership is £65 per year, payable to RABDF.

Membership benefits include:

  • Dedicated online forum for anyone using or interested in robotic milking. Access is only available to RABDF ARM Members,
  • Access to a network of likeminded persons with mutual interests.
  • Two free tickets to the Livestock Event, organised by RABDF, each year where a meeting will be held for all ARM members,
  • Invitations to all RABDF organised farm walks and open days, 
  • Access to the RABDF energy helpline to help reduce energy costs,
  • Access to RABDF council members,
  • Voting rights at elections,
