Last week, we shared Arnold van Dorp’s robotic milking story in the February 24th blog, Lely Astronaut A4 users tell their story – Van Dorp dairy farm.
Today, we’d like to introduce you to Karsten Jensen from Denmark. Karsten currently milks 130 cows with two Lely Astronaut robotic milking systems.
Why did you opt for a Lely Astronaut A4 milking robot?
When I decided to replace my existing robots (of another brand) I opted for the Astronaut A4 for several reasons. I knew that Lely was a solid company and that they reinvest six percent of their turnover in R&D. This tells me that Lely will also be there in the future and that they will keep developing new dairy equipment. The local Lely Center is located very near; that provides a safe feeling. I like the simplicity of the robot because it ensures operational reliability.
