I wonder how long it will be before the bulls get jealous and demand an equivalent device for themselves.
I'm sending that link to my cousin. She and her husband run a dairy farm. I wonder if they already know about it...
I predict the newest stunt for farm kids will be to take the id tag from a cow, put it on a bull, and send him into the milking shed.
Btw, has anyone here ever gone cow tipping?
It doesn't say anything about how this device disinfects the udder before milking, or how it would detect a cow with mastitis...even with automatic milking machines, there's always a person present to disinfect the udder and do a visual inspection to ensure the cow is fit to be milked. Otherwise, if you have a cow with an infection and she gets milked anyway, you're dumping the entire day's worth of milk unless this machine also stores the milk from each cow separately until tested and mixed.
I would say that the cows would still need a daily manual inspection, but as only someone that has nursed can tell you, I bet those machines are a cow's best friend.
Guys, you disappoint me. This was supposed to turn into a horrific cow pun session.
Who turned down the central heating? It's bloody fresian in here.
What ever next, cows look forwards to the touch of a human hand tweeking
their teats, mechanisation can go to far, they allready suffer AI, i say leave
the poor cows alone and let them have some fun before they get eaten.
I think i will get some teat tweeking lessons, never know when it will come in handy.
A crowded subway is a great practice ground.
You don't eat dairy cows.
Amen my brother.
Holy cow! What an udderly a-moo-sing story! Better?
You have alot to learn.
If by better you mean not, then why yes of course. But if you were not speaking in fact of the antithesis of what you were speaking, then well no of course not you silly person-thing you.
I've seem those machine on TV. A disinfection/cleaning step has been included in the program. Also, the milk is analyse while the cow is being milked. It will check the temperature, fat content, electrical conductivity and colour (presence of blood or yellow secretion).
Cool. Hmm...that seems to offer even more benefit than just convenience for the cow to analyze the milk like that.
Silly me, of course we bury them, and it is all lies that the only part we don't eat is the moo
I guess those bulls are really going to set off some alarm bells.
