An automated milking data system for dairy farms. I. Hardware

Canadian Agricultural Engineering 26(2): 127-133
An automated milking data system for dairy farms. I. Hardware
An automated system for acquisition of milk yield data, control of feed-grain and communication of cow health information was tested over 3 yr on a commercial dairy farm. Cow identity numbers are entered manually and displayed on a data monitor unit which is linked to milk meters with electronic output and feed dispensers for up to 8 stalls. Data are continuously exchanged between a microcomputer and up to 4 monitors in the milking parlour.
