2013 Yılında Roosburg Farms Inc.'ı yıkan bir yangın sonrasında John Verburg ve iki oğlu, Cole ve Ian, yeniden inşa etmeye ve otomasyonla modernleştirmeye karar verdi.
“Tam-çözüm yaklaşımı işletmemizi ve hayatlarımızı gerçekten değiştirdi."
Şu anda Verburg’lar 90 ineği iki-kutuluMIone Otomatik Süt Sağım Sistemi ile Athens, Ontario'daki süt çiftliğinde sağmaktadır. "GEA'nın Mlone robotik süt sağım sistemini gördüğümüzde hemen aşık olduk," diyor John Verburg.
Since GEA provides total farm-solutions the Verburgs were able to work on the MIone Multi-box Automated Milking System, along with the intelligent barn design and everything that needed to go in it. From the bulk tank and vacuum pump to the sorting gates and manure scrapers, GEA had all of their needs covered and automated for efficiency.
“Being able to get everything from one company and having the same guys install everything made it really easy,” says Cole Verburg. “Their team really looked out for us, from start to finish.”
“All of the equipment from GEA works together to make the barn run smoothly and that makes for a more comfortable cow,” adds Ian Verburg. “A more comfortable cow is a cow that wants to get milked more and returns us more profit.”
“The MIone robotic milking system and everything that the GEA design provided us really changed our business and our lives,” says Cole Verburg. “The MIone robot helps free us up to do a better job managing. We have more time to focus on genetics and breeding,” continues Verburg. “The system gives you so much information to manage your herd better, and the time to do it, it’s something we love.”
