A bloodline as deep as the modern dairy industry itself. Pioneers in milking, since 1852 Today, the BouMatic milking robot has a bloodline that runs as deep as the modern dairy industry itself.

Decades later, in 1939, Lawrence Bouma made history with his invention of the Hi-flo pulsator, as an alternative to the...

Superior milking quality with the Each cow determines when she is ready to be milked and sets her own rhythm. The identification system recognizes the cow, determines whether it is time to be milked and then decides how much concentrate it should be given. The robot arm approaches the udder between the cow’s back legs. The latest camera techniques are used to determine where the teats are. Gently, quickly and completely, each teat is individually prepped for milking using a liner in a dedicated pre-treatment cup. The entire process is optimally sequenced for teat end cleanliness and milk...

Alexandre Serrant La Grand-Celland, France MILKING FROM BEHIND CONVINCED US At Gaec Le Rocher they visited a lot of other robots before they decided to choose for a BouMatic milking robot. It was mainly the milking between the rear legs that convinced them because they noticed that the cows did a lot less kicking at the robot compared to systems that milk from the side. After milking for 5 years with a MR-S1 single robot, the dairy farm management decided to install a MR-D1 double box robot because their herd size had increased to more than 60 cows. They choose for the BouMatic milking...

Optimal udder preparation, cow focus Before milking, each teat is individually prepared for milking using a separate liner in a dedicated pre-treatment cup. The entire pre-milking process is optimally sequenced for teat cleaning, teat-stimulation, pre-milking and maximum oxytocin production for optimal milk let-down. When preparation is complete, the milking cups are attached, and milking starts straight away. The whole preparation process lasts 60 to 90 seconds, which is also the time a cow needs to have a good oxytocin release and a good milk let-down. Open view, happier cow Through the...
