The most experienced milking robot worldwide

1992 marks a moment of true revolution for dairy farming, the first working prototype of a fully automated milking system. It represents a whole new way of milking and working. It is therefore no suprise that dairy farmers consider this the most important invention of the 20th century for dairy farming. Now, 31 years later the 50.000 Astronaut automatic milking system will be installed.
