Have you heard the one about the cow and the Lely Astronaut A4 Milking Machine? It may sound like a joke, but it is reality. A Dutch company created the robotic milking machine and it does not require any human intervention!
Information from the Lely.com website share the following about this new milking system:
“Better milk quality, higher milk production together with lower costs lead to higher profits. The Lely Astronaut A4 makes it possible to manage these three aspects to achieve the optimum results.”
This amazing technology milks 60 cows three times a day and the cost is about $200,000 for a fully installed single unit. Leave it to our farm and agribusiness businesses to lead the way with very unique technological advances.
Here is the link to read a recent article about the milking system:
