Can a robot be used for milking in a concentrate feeding box?



Can a robot be used for milking in a concentrate feeding box?



Landbouwmechanisatie 36(2): 119-121



An experiment was carried out over 11 weeks with 20 cows. Milking equipment was installed next to the feed box and each cow was milked during feeding. Cows visited the feeding box on average 5.4. times a day and were milked on 75% of their visits. Milking several times a day had a positive effect on milk production and the fat and protein content of the milk was unaffected.
