An article published in the 2020 Journal of the ASFMRA contains a financial analysis of alternative levels of facility investment associated with installing automatic milking systems (AMS).

In addition to installing two automatic milking units at a cost of $380,000, the paper looks at three facility construction alternatives: a minimal retrofit to existing facilities costing $70,000; construction of a new open sided barn costing $470,000; and the construction of a fully enclosed barn costing $920,000. Therefore, the total investment ranges from $450,000 to $1,300,000.
