Thanks to Bob for the distraction from studying wines in the form of an automated milking machine!
I know there is nothing new to milking machines...but how bout one that does Step A all the way to Step Z?
What really gets me about the system is the cows come in and out as they please (At least that is my understanding of it).
Here's a clip for all the food (and science) g33ks out there:
While watching the whole process I noticed how very at ease the animal seemed with the process. Cows already seem lethargic to me, but if you have ever seen one trying to be "escorted" into a confined area you know they can get pretty wild.
I'm really interested in getting over to the farm at some point in the near future to visit and possibly get some samples of their product.
For anyone interested its Hendricks Dairy.
