The article reports on the research that examine the capacity of a fully automated milking system at the Dexcel's Greenfield Project, a research farm set up in Hamilton, New Zealand. Robotic milking system, in contrast to batch milking, is used to milk 180 cows once every 18 hours. A robotic milker can milk one cow at a time and no cow activity happens in the morning. A system was developed where new cows will be trained and a milking machine system that operates within 24 hours.
