Once cows are in the stall, a mechanized brush sanitizes their udder. Then lasers help move the milking device into position.
Matt Cannon, a Pittstown, Rensselaer County dairyman, said he plans on installing robotic milkers this spring, in part because it good business, but more because of the personal freedom they give him. Instead of spending countless hours milking cows, he can entrust farm operations to a reliable helper, Andy Brizzell, and take well deserved time off once in a while.

Sometimes he interrupts cows during feeding or watering when it time for them to be milked. With the new system, animals wander to robotic machines on their own, enticed by sweet tasting, high energy feed.

Improved genetics, nutrition and efficiencies have helped make up for the decrease in farm numbers, too.

The Bordens $1.2 million overall expenditure included the cost of a new barn, feeding system and related computer hardware.
needed to do something, Mike Borden said. we were going to stay in the dairy business we needed to make an investment. Cows are milked more frequently an average 3.3 times daily instead of twice, and more milk means more revenue. Thanks to robotics, each cow is producing an extra 12 pounds of milk per day, which translates into a 10 percent overall rise in production. Plans call for adding another 40 cows and two more robotics in the next few years.
worry of not having enough people to do the work that is required on the farm 365 days a year, said Steve Ammerman, Farm Bureau spokesman. it is a significant financial investment, the robotic milking parlors also reduce labor costs.
expect that number to double in the next year, he said. just a ton of efficiencies energy, feed, labor. That what it all about. New York Farm Bureau President Dean Norton says immigration reform is the industry most important issue. New policies are needed that would make it easier for foreign workers to do jobs that most Americans don want, he said recently.
Until last Nov. 5, when the system came on line, all cows were housed in an older style barn with a traditional milking parlor built almost 40 years ago, in 1976. Now more than half the 191 cow herd lives in a new barn that includes two robotic machines, costing about $200,000 each.
But that wasn enough for their entire herd. Another 90 cows are still housed in an older barn and milked in a traditional parlor. So a total conversion, a few years in the offing, will require an even bigger investment of capital and training.
amazing how quick they took it up, he said.
Borden and Sons uses two robotic milkers for 111 cows. A 1,000 cow herd might need up to 10 times that many machines.
In the meantime, robotics give farmers another way to overcome such challenges.

That good news for Stewart Shops Corp., which buys the Bordens milk because two dozen farms in the Stewart network of producers have gone out of business since 2008, from 56 down to 32. So anything that contributes to a steady milk supply for the company 330 retail stores is a welcome development.

About 100 New York farms have installed robotics along with another 42 in Vermont, said Paul Godin, owner of Lely Center Albany, a regional distributor.
