When the exhibit judges saw what BouMatic had on display at the 2010 World Dairy Expo, it was no contest who was getting the Best Large Booth award.
The Robotic Post Milking Spray System was quite an attention-getter at the expo. “After the cow is milked, this system will apply teat dip automatically and consistently as the cows come through the system,” says BouMatic’s John Mansavage, who says the machine can take the place of three full time employees on a commercial dairy.
They still have a few tweaks to do before the system becomes commercially available, so John didn’t give a time frame for that, nor would he say how much it might cost, but he says it will be well worth it in terms of saving labor costs.
