With the Edition 2021, Gea presents an update of its automatic milking system, the DairyRobot R9500. We highlight the improvements and find out what difference they’ll make.

Externally there isn’t much to separate the new R9500 from the old, the only noticeable difference being the noseshaped style of the stainless casing. Most of the emphasis has been on reducing maintenance and repair costs: for example, certain seals only have to be changed every six months instead of every three. But first things first.
