The most advanced milking machines are controlled by the cows. Whenever needed, the cow activates a robot that takes its temperature, cleans its udder and extracts milk. It’s a fully automated system that involves no humans at all. Is it efficiency or animal cruelty? The ethical impact of technology is often difficult to ascertain.
