Dairymaster has introduced artificial intelligence to rotary milking systems and their Mission Control system was selected as the overall Enterprise Ireland Innovation Arena Awards winner at the ‘Ploughing’.
Features include ‘CowNow’ which is an advanced cow recognition system. The OptiCruise technology incorporated into the design adjusts the speed of milking so that milking time is optimized.
It also identifies the history of each individual cow, predicts its milk-out time and combines it with the milk-out time of the cows already featured on the problem.
This innovative breakthrough “revolutionises milking time, decision-making and control”, allowing the operator to control everything by touch from one location, according to the company.
