24 hour milk filling station a hit

  a German dairy farmer has come up with a novel way to drum up new business - he opened a "milk filling station". The "Milchtankstelle" near cologne in the town of Neunkirchen-Seelscheid dispenses the output of 78 cows from a stainless steel vending machine. Customers can either bring their own empty containers or buy milk bottles to fill up.

  "I only had a few customers before  i opened the station because they had to come at set milking times, which was a problem", dairy farmer Bruno Stauf told Reuters. "Now they can buy my milk whenever they want."
  The milk filling station is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Customers can select the amount of milk they want to purchase at a price of 70 cents per liter. They insert the money, put their container under the nozzle and press a button.
  At 70 cents a liter, the milk from the filling station is more expensive than at some supermarkets, but Stauf, points out the advantages of tapping a machine for fresh milk.
