Robots Milking Cows

Cows being milked by robots is happening more and more. At Fair Oaks Farms here in Northwest Indiana, 12 robots have been milking close to 800 cows since March.


The cows step in, the robots clean their teats, then slap on the milking machines.  Michael McCloskey is the owner of the popular tourist destination. He says it’s really worked out especially for the cows, and their comfort.  McCloskey says the robotic milking operation should be open to the public in April.


Experts say cows like it so much, they give more milk and robotic milking helps with labor being in short supply.
