We invite you to take a virtual tour of a fully automated free flow Canadian barn. This robotic facility uses cutting-edge technology to optimize production. CLICK THE LINK HERE and use the map in the lower left corner to see an overview of the barn. Controls in the lower left corner can be used to navigate the barn.
Voluntary robotic milking is an exciting proposition when considering the benefits, but can fall short of expectations if the facility is not properly planned. Like any building needs a strong and organized structure, planning a VMS facility requires proper planning to ensure cow comfort, cow flow, flexibility, expandability and sustainability.
Please note the tour is intended to assist you with the planning and design of a robotic milking facility by visually demonstrating features we have found to work well. A successful robotic milking operation requires sound farm and herd management practices by dairy producers who are willing to work with technology and manage change effectively. You are encouraged to work with a qualified architect and/or contractor in consultation with your veterinarian when designing your robotic milking facility.
