What is a robotic milking parlour?

Unless you're a science fiction fan, robots in the countryside might sound like an alien concept. But it's not as strange as it sounds - a robotic milking parlour is simply a voluntary milking system for cows.

The milking machines connect automatically to the cow's teats and turn off when the milking is complete. A safety mechanism ensures that cows can only be milked for a certain number of times per day, with some cows choosing to be milked four or five times a day.
