Workers installing robotic milking machine in Deansboro

By WKTV News

(WKTV) - Workers are installing a robotic milking machine today at a farm in Deansboro.

The Mione Milking Machine is a completely automatic system that will track and milk the 300 cows on the farm, requiring very little human interaction. Each cow will have its own identification number.

The machine will not only milk the cows, but monitor any health issues.  

The distributor says it increases milk production and will reduce labor costs. The system should be fully operational by Thanksgiving.

Mione is a German company with a manufcaturing division in Wisconsin.
