Abstract :

Margins are very slim in the Dairy Industry, and companies in the United Kingdom have been competing to reduce overhead costs and improve yield. Therefore, the demand for automation in the dairy industry is increasing. This article offers a brief comparison between a fully automated modern dairy, and a manually operated dairy in the UK. At primary production, the effect of automated milking parlours on the quality and yield of raw milk are examined. Automation has also assisted the implementation of rigid traceability systems in the dairy industry, through MIS and SCADA systems. As the industry moves towards an integrated supply chain, the benefits of automation on the traceability of the product from source to consumer are discussed.
