Cyborg cows

At a high-tech dairy farm in Moncton.

The day begins with the first milking at 4:30 a.m. As each cow is led into the “milking parlour” a computer reads a microchip in her ear, relaying information about milk output to a screen attached to the milking machine.

This information allows farm workers to keep track of how much milk each cow is producing. If a cow produces below her average, it’s a signal she may be sick.

A computer monitor attached to the wall provides detailed information on each cow. The flat screen looks out of place on the manure-splattered wall.
