The Astronaut A4 has been developed from a clear-cut starting point: the cow. The robot ensures the highest achievable milk quality while its unique management tools ensure you have full control over your herd. The unique robot arm and I-flow concept allow for quick entrance/quick exit from the box and are examples of how innovative strategies work to assure cows are milked within a low-threshold system. The Astronaut ensures the most reliable detection of mastitis available in today’s marketplace. In-line every day indication of fat and protein levels per cow can be obtained through the Astronaut’s optional dynamic milking and feeding module.
