Cows with choice

Automated milking

5 Fullwood Merlin Automatic Milking Machines (AMS) milk the cows 24 hours a day.  The cows decide when and how often they are milked.  High yielding cows may visit them 5 or 6 times within 24 hours, the low yielding cows may only need 1 to 2 visits.  And yes, some cows do have a favorite ‘robot’ they like to be milked in!
