Throughout years of discovery A H Tuttle and Company has historically utilized various common concepts in our Innovative - Research and Development. At one time in the early nineteen-eighties our (BLUESHIFT INSTRUMENTS © Division) innovative approach to a challenge involving Dairy Personnel and Dairy Automation interaction was to include within the ultimate solution the standardization of the input elements held by the various dairy animal udder types themselves; in effect we changed “Variable” animal udder types into “Standard” animal udder types by invoking an applied interface device between animal and the dairy automatic (milking) machine. We introduced a device affixed to (worn by) the dairy cows as an extension of themselves and their mammary system. This same low-tech, low-cost device acted also as an extension of the machine in a sense, by virtue of its standardized design, every “Variable” dairy cow wearing our device now “Looked” like a standard dairy cow to the automated machine process. A faster, cleaner milking routine ensued; a dynamic feat seldom achieved even today by the very best of the dairy automation industry and at the same time at a very low cost.
