Robotic Icelandic farm has made cows happier

Cows don’t normally get a say in how they spend their days. The first milking often comes at dawn, where they form a cow conga line to their milking stations. Then comes feeding, then resting, then more milking (and perhaps a wander in the pasture, if they’re allowed to graze in open fields at all). Commercial farming operations repeat this cycle two to three times a day, with each cow having to abide by the farmers’ schedules, not their own.
