Cow Milking

Cow Milking with Motoman Robots

It may sound strange, but Automation in the livestock and dairy industry is more advanced than you think. Literally thousands of robots are already working in this demanding application, exposed to excrements and kicks every day. Robotic milking stations perform teat cleaning and milking procedures, following the cow's movements guided by intelligent laser camera and machine vision guided. In combination with the transponder identification of the cow, the milking protocol is communicated to the central management software, this helping to collect accurate data and achieving lower empty rates and better milk yields.
