Dry cows at a distance.
If your farm allows for it, it is much better when you place dry cows at a distance from the VMS station or milking parlor. It would have to be far enough that they do not hear or see any pulsations, concentrate falling or other cows moving around the AMS. Also, its recommended that the cows have no sight of the VMS.
But place them where you can see them often! (Are they healthy? Is their rumen filling ok? etc.)
