GEA Farm Technologies has broken ground in North America on a first-of-its-kind robotic rotary milking system. The system allows for the installation of individual, fully automatic robotic milking stall modules on a rotary parlor.
The installation of the 72-stall DairyProQ rotary parlor is at Mlsna East Town Dairy, Cashton, Wis., and is expected to be completed in March of 2015. In addition to being the first in North America, it is much larger in scope and size than the prototypes and pilot farm already seen in Europe.
With the new system, MIsna East Town Dairy is expanding from 900 to 2,000 cows.
