Raussi, Satu and Kaihilahti, Jutta (2004) Cow welfare aspects in automatic milking systems. In: Rønningen, Odd (Ed.) NJF Report, Nordic Association of Agricultural Scientists (337), pp. 71-76.
This paper deals with the aspects of cow welfare in automatic milking systems, using literature and observations from the Suitia research farm and the first Finnish private farms. The welfare of a cow is largely dependent on her stockperson, also in automatic milking systems. Cow traffic arrangements are decisive in the cow's welfare.
