Un-Manned Milking of Goats

Technology is one such thing which has touched every section of life and has made living a little easier. And agriculture is well not spared by it. Today Krishi Jagran presents you a technology from Israel, which perhaps would make you feel like being in a hi-tech movie.

Technology is one such thing that has touched every section of life and has made living a little easier. And agriculture is well not spared by it. Today Krishi Jagran presents you a technology from Israel, which perhaps would make you feel like being in a hi-tech movie. 

Science and technology are among Israel's most developed sectors. In 2013, Israel spent 4.2 percent of its GDP on civil research and development, one of the highest ratios in the world.

According to the Bloomberg Innovation Index, Israel ranks fifth among the most inventive countries. With this record, an Israeli company, SAC, has created a completely new and creative external rotary – and it is intended for farmers with huge herds who wish to milk quickly and efficiently.

This company has created an external rotor that sucks milk from goat milk pouches. SAC has made certain that animal welfare is prioritized. The goats look perfectly trained when they enter the milking chambers.

For each goat, a separate milking chamber is allocated and silicon suction pumps are attached to the goats to fetch the milk in depositors.  The rotary milking parlor's entry and exit gates are designed to prevent crushing. All parts of the milking parlor have rounded edges for the best comfort.

Milking over 1.000 goats an hour is no exception with for example a rotary with 100 places, moreover, with two milkers, you can milk up to 1.400 goats per hour, for example, if you have a rotary with 120 or 140 places. And meanwhile, the goats are milked, they are fed with fodder to kept them busy.

Milk and Milker Pros :

The position of the IDC control unit – and the milk line directly under the udder - ensures a short and gentle transport of the milk. Because of this, the fat globules remain intact – and the milk keeps its fresh and sweet taste. From the separator, the milk is pumped through a SAC frequency-regulated impeller milk pump to the cooling tank as slowly as possible. The system handles the milk with the utmost care. The high quality of the milk is kept in all aspects.

The external rotary from SAC meets all the demands to work ergonomically and efficiently. The innovative and absolutely unique SAC-service-arm ensures that the HandyFlow2 cluster can be attached in the most ergonomic way. The arm and the vacuum are sensor-operated and do not require any physical labor. 

The machine has been made considering the hygiene and after milking, the machine goes for cleaning in automated mode. The data is generated to weigh the milk and a tester is also set up to justify the quality of milk sucked out of the goats. The automated system also keeps watching on the goats milking and machine performance. With this kind of machine, agriculture can be less laborious and would attract the youth and science altogether to work efficiently.
