Green Source Automation was born out of the extensive automation and robotics experience of Ram Mechanical Inc. (RMI), a visionary global leader in industrial automation which dates back to the mid-1980s. Over fifteen years ago a few progressive dairymen approached RMI to discuss dairy automation alternatives for their milking parlors. Out of these conversations Green Source Automation was born and our unique solutions have continued to evolve.
While the modern rotary dairy parlor dates back to the 1970s, it wasn’t until its reintroduction in the 2000s that valuable efficiencies were first truly realized. The dairy industry has seen a rotary revolution over the last twenty years and GSA has been an important leader in that process. The application of continuous flow production in the rotary parlor has been significantly impacted by our dairy robots and we have helped create some of the most efficient and productive dairies in history. At the site of one of our latest projects, you will find 6,000 cows being milked by only two milkers with our teat-cleaning, teat-sanitizing, and teat-stimulating robots working at a speed of 4.4 seconds per stall.
GSA started with a postdip teat-spray robot that continues to evolve, and which has led to revolutionary innovations on the predip side of the parlor. Our product developments have helped change what’s possible in the dairy world and made us an award-winning innovator in the world of automation. As one of many industry leaders in the Fernandez Holdings family of companies, GSA benefits from the financial strength of Fernandez Holdings and the ability to leverage the expertise of sibling companies to enhance our success and deliver long-term, sustainable growth.
Green Source Automation is proud to announce that World Ag Expo®, the largest agricultural trade show of its kind, has selected GSA’s new RotaryMATE EXPSplus as one of the top ten new products of the year.
"Cows are milked in carousels designed for efficiency and healthy, humane treatment. Key to management are radio frequency identification (RFID) tags. Sort gates help limit human interaction and 'let cows be cows.' Pre- and post-dip robotics have reduced human contact and human error, resulting in a 17% reduction in mastitis."
At Green Source Automation, we recognize the important role our clients play in providing essential food to the world. As some of us have personally witnessed empty dairy coolers recently it has become clear just how critical it is to the world to continue to produce quality milk as safely and efficiently as possible.
Green Source Automation’s rotary dairy customers experience healthier animals with reduced somatic cell counts and reduced likelihood of bimodality. Our automatic predip and automatic postdip dairy robots result in more consistent and often increased milk production, faster milk let down, and significant labor savings that pay for the technology in a short period of time and add to the bottom line for years to come. The Green Source RotaryMATE system can achieve the same results for you.
