SUFFIELD – State Representatives Tami Zawistowski (R-61) and Bill Simanski (R-62), members of legislature’s Rural Caucus, recently toured Hastings Farm with co-owner Susan Hastings to learn more about the challenges small dairy farms are facing in Connecticut.

“Susan Hastings provided a very informative tour,” said Rep. Zawistowski who is co-Chair of the Rural Caucus. “I was especially interested to learn about their DeLaval robotic milking machine and see how it works. They were early adopters of the technology, which I learned frees up time and resources to focus on producing wonderful yogurt, cheeses and milk. I was also impressed with the amount of data and information the machine can collect to make sure the cows are happy and healthy.”
