There’s a change happening in the dairy industry, and it’s picking up speed! Farms are getting fewer but bigger – that's what we call farm consolidation. The Challenge: Finding skilled workers for large farms is getting tougher. That's why everyone's talking about "batch milking" these days.
Batch milking is far from new territory for GEA. We have been milking cows in groups and fixed times in regular milking parlors for more than 70 years. And in the last 10 years, we've been showcasing our competence in batch milking with automatic machines. From tailored systems for small herds, to milking setups for 12.000 cows we are offering solutions for all needs.
In GEA we leverage our expertise and knowledge to create an efficient and innovative milking process you can rely on long term! For decades, we have dedicated ourselves to refining and investing in our platform strategy, with our proven stall unit serving as the core of innovation.
With this at heart, our automated solutions come in various shapes and options, seamlessly integrating into any barn and setting, catering to the needs of herds of all sizes.
Recognizing the growing importance of automatic batch milking, we are continually developing and enhancing solutions to make the process as easy and efficient as possible relying on our trusted technology.
