The act of buying a milking robot nowadays is common and easy but achieving an efficient and steady operation once on the farm is of greater importance. There is a necessity for continuity within a farm’s operation for both the herd and the farmer. With over 80 years of experience in milking, BouMatic understands the importance of carefree milking and drew upon their vast knowledge to introduce the new dimension of robot milking: The Gemini. This newest generation milking robot is ready to empower all sizes of dairy farms worldwide.
