Green Source Automation has continued to build on its success in the dairy industry. One of the latest completed projects validates the RotaryMATE as the clear leader in high-performance milk harvesting. A new GSA customer is currently milking over 13,000 cows twice a day on two 106-stall rotary platforms. These platforms, equipped with GSA’s RotaryMATE EXPS and EXPD units, only require three staffed labor positions per platform to accomplish this feat. In terms of the number of cows milked each day for each staffed position, the dairy is milking over 4,300 cows per position each day. Many dairies strive to be half this efficient. This dairyman’s forward-thinking vision combined with the automation leadership of GSA has resulted in one of the most efficient dairies in the world.
GSA’s innovation has allowed the rotary to turn at speeds previously unheard of in automation. The RotaryMATE system has now broken the 5-second per stall barrier, and can now process cows as fast as 4.7 seconds per cow.
