The Monobox Automated Milking System from GEA is now available in Canada. Delivering the ultimate in automated milking efficiency and performance, the Monobox ensures optimal milk harvesting in a stall designed for comfort.
With innovative in-liner cow prep and milking procedures, and the fastest attachment in the industry, the Monobox Automated Milking System features the latest in automated milking technology.
“Dairy farmers continue to look towards automated milking as a solution to reduce labor expenses while maintaining a highly productive herd,” says Mario Jean, automation sales manager with GEA North America. “The Monobox incorporates the same robotic milk module and milk rack as GEA’s DairyProQ automated rotary – just in a box-style configuration. It’s an extremely efficient and proven system that gives dairy farmers an automated milking option unlike anything else on the market.”
GEA’s unique in-liner-everything technology ensures efficient milking in one quick, uniform procedure. After attachment, each milking step – stimulation, teat cleaning, fore-stripping, milk harvest and post-dipping – is done inside the liner. With the fast milking process, cows spend less time milking and more time eating and resting. Plus, it allows for more milkings per robot per day.
“The efficiency of the milking process is what takes the Monobox to the next level in automation,” says Jean. “The time of flight camera on the milk rack matches the teatcups to the teats for the fastest unit attachment in the industry.”
The Monobox offers herds of any size milk harvest that is not only fast, but focuses on milk quality. High-tech sensors analyze milk color, conductivity and temperature, and the backflush process cleans and disinfects the milking unit between each cow.
The Monobox Automated Milking System can be seamlessly integrated into any cow traffic system and works with many different management styles. Its surface box mount makes it easy to install in new or existing barns. Maintenance is quick and convenient with the service-friendly robotic milk module. Certified Monobox dealers and GEA’s support team provide expert resources and herd management services from planning and installation to start-up and beyond.
