Did you install a Robotic Milker that had serious operational problems?

Did your Robotic Milker fail to perform as represented and advertised?

Stueve Siegel Hanson LLP, Cullenberg & Tensen, and Perrone Law have filed class-action lawsuits against DeLaval Inc. and Lely North America, Inc. on behalf of dairy farmers who purchased and were dissatisfied with the robotic milking systems they sold.

The lawsuit related to DeLaval’s voluntary milking system (“VMS”) robots alleges that the VMS robots were defective and failed to perform as represented. Specifically, the systems did not achieve “true quarter milking” as promised, dairy farmers were not permitted to upgrade their VMS robots, and the system did not come equipped with mastitis detection and an online cell counter.

We have already obtained evidence from former DeLaval sales agents, attached to our lawsuit that DeLaval’s robots were defective and that its marketing was misleading or fraudulent.

The firms also filed a class-action lawsuit against Lely North America, Inc. on behalf of dairy farmers who purchased and were dissatisfied with the Lely Astronaut A4 automatic milking system. The lawsuit alleges that the systems were defective and failed to perform as represented by Lely.

We are also investigating potential cases against Galaxy and GEA related to the robotic milking systems they sold in the United States that had operational problems or failed to perform as advertised.

If you are a dairy farmer who purchased the VMS system from DeLaval, the Astronaut A4 from Lely, or a robotic milking system from GEA or Galaxy we would like to hear your story and discuss your legal options. Contact us today for a free, confidential consultation. 888-816-2107
