By the start of next year, Agricola Ancali’s 6,500 cow dairy near Los Ángeles, Chile will be home to 64 individual robotic milkers.

It was formally announced June 22 that Fundo El Risquillo farm owned by Agricola Ancali will become the world’s largest robotic dairy.

The dairy currently milks 920 cows with 16 DeLaval VMS robotic milkers. The first eight robots were installed in October 2014, and another eight were installed at the end of March. At the moment, four rotary parlors milk another 5,600 cows.
