Did you know there are over 35,000 robotic milking units on dairy farms across the globe? There are engineers and robotic milking technicians involved in bringing this innovative technology to life on dairy farms.
If you’re going to try some of the National Engineers Week activities we shared above, or just want to make some STEM connections with your students, share this fact with them and play this video from Takes Dairy Farm. The video showcases the robotic milking technology they have on their operation! It’s fascinating to watch how robots are involved in milking cows and how dairy farmers can use this technology to their advantage.
