Stueve Siegel Hanson LLP and Cullenberg & Tensen have filed a class-action lawsuit against DeLaval Inc. on behalf of dairy farmers who purchased and were dissatisfied with DeLaval’s voluntary milking system (“VMS”) robots.

The lawsuit 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.

We are also investigating potential cases against Lely and Galaxy 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, or a robotic milking system from Lely 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
