Robot milking parlour at Orway Farm, Devon
England

Orway farm has installed a state of the art milking system in the dairy. The robotic equipment first cleans the udders and then uses a laser to guide the milking equipment into place. Yields for each animal are data-logged, and any abnormalities in the milk are picked up instantly. Each animal wears a tag that identifies it to the system. The cows receive the correct amount of feed automatically and the tag prevents them from entering the milking cycle at the wrong time. The cows love the system as it means they are free to wander in the adjacent fields, but they can be milked as many times as they want in a day. They even have an automated back scratcher! The equipment frees the farmer from the drudgery of twice a day milking, and actually improves milk production from the whole herd, while tracking the detailed information about the yield from each cow.

More About Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights. In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states. Text by Steve Smith.
