Notes
  • You seem to be impressed by the robotic milker. I'm not. Milking the cows is half the fun of keeping cows. When you have Robots milk the cows it is them who have all the fun. You should see the faces of amateurs milking the cows on You Tube Videos videos. Try milking a cow yourself once.

  1. 1. Vardhman JainHurlstone Agricultural High School
  2. 2. QuestionsQ. What do you get when you  put ice and cream  together?A. Ice Cream.Q. What do you get when you  put a straw and a berry  together?A. A Strawberry.
  3. 3. So…Q. What do you get when you put a robot and a dairy farm together?
  4. 4. A Robotic Rotary!
  5. 5. What is the Robotic Rotary?• The robotic rotary, as the name suggests, is a new technology that allows dairy  farmers to milk their cows with only very limited human input. This is made  possible through laser tracking which locates the udder and a robotic arm which  reaches out towards the udder with the milking cups and performs the suction  action (with vacuum and pulsation).• This system was designed by DeLaval and FutureDairy. It was released in Germany  and Australia in November 2010. The DeLaval AMR™ (Automatic Milking Rotary)  can milk 50‐90 cows per hour. Moo
  6. 6. Milking Methods• The Automatic Milking Rotary (AMR)  supports two methods for milk  production. The first is voluntary milking while the other is batch milking.• Voluntary milking involves the dairy cows coming on their own to be milked  automatically. This requires no direct human input, however, good farm  management is required to ensure that the cows volunteer for milking  regularly to ensure milk yield is not reduced.• Batch milking involves the dairy farmer bringing in small groups of cows to  be milked throughout the day. This requires the initial human input, but  during the milking, the farmer can attend to other priorities.• Bringing all the cows to the AMR™ is not appropriate as the AMR™ rate of  milking is 50‐90 cows per hour. This would involve too many cows having to  wait in the dairy for a long time considering that the herd is above 300  cows.
  7. 7. Benefits• No physical labour ‐ There is no input from the farmer to milk the cows as  the robotic arms perform all the milking actions.• Milking consistency ‐ The milk is consistent as it is not influenced by  different people. Different people place the suction cups for a different  length of time which influences the quantity and quality of the milk.• Increased milking frequency ‐ A three‐times‐per‐day milking cycle reduces  the stress on the udder and this increases the milk yield.• Herd Management ‐ Computers can monitor individual cows and allow  more accurate data collection, which can be used to see the condition of  the herd. Individual cow histories can be recorded to identify any changes,  which gives an early sign of an illness.
  8. 8. Drawbacks• Despite this system’s efficient control, there are still some inputs required  from the dairy farmer. These include‐ activating the washing system. attending to the problems. observing individual cow performance.• The major problem with this system is the initial installation cost – this  should be offset by labour savings to be economically viable. • With any piece of new technology, there is an increase in complexity with  the new methods which increases the chance of a system failure.• The reduced contact between the farmer and the herd means that the  farmer is unaware of any physical injuries.• AMR™ will also require high maintenance, increasing maintenance costs
  9. 9. The AMR in use• The next slide is an animation that illustrates the movement of the cows in  the DeLaval AMR™ system. The cows enter through the opening door  where they are positioned to be milked at a 30˚ angle. After this, the cows  travel around the structure in a circle where they are milked. Please note  that in the AMR™, the cows are stationary and it is the platform that  rotates.• The following slide is a video clip that was made by DeLaval to represent the  system. The udder is located through the use of laser technology and  camera in real time. Please click on the box.

  12. 12. Other Automatic Milking Systems• The AMR™ is the first automatic milking rotary system, but not the first automatic milking system (AMS). AMS are also known as single (or multi)  boxes. These are shaped like a booth, as shown in the picture below.• Other AMS include ‐• DeLaval VMS  (Sweden)• Galaxy Robot AMS  (Denmark)• Lely Astronaut AMS  (Netherlands)• Merlin AMS  (UK)• Titan AMS (Germany) DeLaval VMS 2010 Model
  13. 13. 2010 Eurotier Gold Medal • The Eurotier Gold Medal is a  esteemed European award given to  new agricultural innovations and  ideas. • This award was presented to the  DeLaval AMR™ for‐ new concept importance of product for practice animal welfare impact on farm and labour management
