Milking Robot Saves Famers Knees

A robot designed by Lely helps save farmers from bending and stooping.  Farmers are known to need knee and hip surgery.  This system saves them from bending, stooping and the later need for surgery.

Cornish dairy farmer Fred Harvey and family have been using the Lely robotic milking system since 2006 to great success. The herd of 125 cows is now producing 1m more litres of milk since switching to robotic milking and there is no waste milk at all.

The cows can now choose when to be milked as the robotic milking system works 24 hours a day.
