DeLaval revealed its new rotary milking system designed for New Zealand farmers on the opening day of Fieldays 2017.
The company said its DeLaval Rotary E100 is the result of a multi-million dollar development process to create the ultimate rotary for New Zealand farming conditions.
“We’ve applied everything we’ve learned over the last 130 years designing and installing dairy systems around the world, to create a rotary that meets the unique challenges of the New Zealand pasture-based dairy system,” executive vice-president Jonas Hallman said.
Until Fieldays, the DeLaval E100 was under wraps on a test farm in Tirau where a 500-cow herd was the first to put the system through its paces over the 2016-17 season. It identifies the cow as it comes in, tells the farmer the milk production or milk loss, and it will automatically draft any cow based on parameters set by the farmer.
