Today, (Monday, August 20th) marks the launch of the DeLaval Rotary E100 in Ireland and the U.K.
The new DeLaval E100 rotary is focused around the four customer challenges including Animal welfare; milk quality; farm profitability; and work efficiency.
Understanding modern dairy farmer’s everyday challenges, the new E100 rotary has focused on the key areas of performance;
- DeLaval Cockpit™ - Puts the operator in control of the whole milking process and allows for a one-man operation rotary;
- DeLaval Fastlane™ - Designed to increase cow throughput on the exit and entry of the parlour, increasing efficiency;
- DeLaval Comfort Bail™ - Unique low profile bail provides a calmer milking and increases cow throughput;
- DeLaval Topflow™ - Provides a gentle milking cluster giving stable and lower vacuum during milking.
The new rotary has been designed to create a better; safer; calmer and more productive experience for both the farmer and their cows, according to the company.
Some of the benefits included a reduced milker workload; faster cow exiting; highest milking capacity on the market and rotations speed can be controlled by production group settings.
The company also stated that there is lower water consumption and high throughput with only one milker.
Customers and animal’s needs
Speaking following the launch, Gary Edwards - CMS Solutions Manager outlined:
“The DeLaval E100 Rotary has been designed around the customer’s and the animal’s needs. It has been designed as a complete milking system focusing on cow flow; ow comfort; efficiency and comfort for the milker.”
“Combined with DelPro™ herd management software, it really offers the farmer complete control of his herd making it easier for him to make management decisions.”
“When working in conjunction with the unique DeLaval teat spray robot (TSR™), it is incredibly labour efficient when labour is becoming increasingly challenging for dairy farmers.”
