Automation in dairying - now and in the near future

, : Automation in dairying - now and in the near future. Proceedings from Computers, electronics and control engineering in agriculture, Are, Sweden, 3-5 February 1986 XIV: 1-XIV: 12

Automation in dairying is reviewed from the animal identification systems of the 1970s to the possibilities of automatic attachment of teatcups. Miniaturised transmitters for cow identification, automatic milk recording flow meters, and measurement of milk temperature, activity of the animal and electrical conductivity of the milk are discussed. An experiment is reported investigating the possibility of combining milking with presentation of the cow at automatic feed dispensers.
