“December 17th of 2017 we had our first cows enter our AMS Galaxy Astrea 20.20 robotic milking system. Going into this enormous change we knew we would have several challenges, but less than a year later we have to say we’re beyond happy with the outcome. While researching different products to fit our milking needs, the Galaxy Astrea 20.20 caught our attention with its unique design for adapting to less than perfect udders.
We went from a swing 10 automatic takeoff parlor to a retrofit Galaxy robot and we would never turn back. Since we’ve had our robot we’ve started improving our herd genetics, made numerous barn changes to make everything more simple for us and the animals and our regular chores are a quarter of the time. Our robot has benefited us in so many ways and by far exceeded our expectations. This is the future, and the more efficient way of farming.” – Lussier family
The milking process can be sub-divided into phases:
1) The pre-stimulation and cleaning phase of the udder
2) Attachment of each teat cup gently with the robotic arm
3) The milking phase
4) The removal phase, whereby the current milk flow determines whether removal can take place for each teat and does not require the robotic arm.
5) The milk pumping phase, whereby the milk is tested and transferred to the central milk cooling tank
"sure I can handle that."

“The biggest advantage by far is the labour saving. The flexibility has changed my life allowing me to spend more time with my family.” – New Day Dairy
2 milking stalls + 1 industrial strength robot arm + 0 hired milking labor = 130 cows milked gently, efficiently and automatically, with advanced robotic technology at a project cost less than a new milking parlor!

mankind has always tried to innovate
For decades farmers have wanted higher milk yields and lower workforce costs. Other benefits continuously sought after were a flexible working day, and the opportunity to create more time available for general work on the herd.
Milking by machine in 1931
astrea 20.20 premium is the next generation of smart farming.
“It makes the cows so much more relaxed and you see [their] characters come out, because it’s not such a mad rush to parlour. It’s like us going on the road during rush hour time, compared with driving on a nice country road.”
