Milking, feeding and manure are all areas where you can make automation work to your advantage.
It is important that animals have easy access to a source of fresh drinking water, correct quantity of high quality feed and live in clean environment.
All these factors are directly linked to animal heath and well-being, but ultimately a productive and highly efficient farm.
Dairy farm automation brings the benefits of improved labour productivity, feed efficiency and cow health, which all add up to better margins.
GEA DairyRobot R9500 is the latest robotic milking system for all farms offering a fully automated milking process. Whether single box or multiple boxes you decide what works for your herd.
The DairyProQ is suitable for medium, large and very large dairy farms. With one robot per stall, which requires just one operator to milk up to 400 cows per hour.
Feeding and nutrition are important factors in efficient dairy production. Feed represents the highest cost in producing a litre of milk, whilst nutrition affects herd health and can ultimately impact on yields.
GEA technology allows you to feed precisely to each cow’s needs avoiding under and overfeeding based on sound herd management and nutritional principles, customised to your farm situation.
Suitable for multiple feed types and feed groups, frequent fresh feed maximises intake, feed conversion, milk production and animal health.
Ed Newton started milking in his 500 cows in a new GEA EuroClass 800 20/40 SwingOver parlor. He decided to get the GEA ApolloMilkSystem, which dips, teats and back flushes the cluster automatically after every milking.
With herds getting bigger, farmers need bigger storage for longer periods or expensive transport to send manure away.
Separating would reduce the space required while recovering of the fibre contained in manure to produce compost or bedding.
