NORTH Antrim farmers, William Steele, and sons Samuel, Robert and Thomas, have marked an important milestone in the history of Lely Center Eglish.

The Ballybogy-based dairy farmers are the proud owners of the 100th Lely Astronaut milking robot in Northern Ireland.

Having sold a number of fragmented farms in 2004 the Steele family decided to purchase one larger holding with enough grazing ground for a large dairy herd.
