Peter Osbourne installed an automated 44-unit Dairymaster rotary. His most important request was the ability for one person to complete the milking.
“The feed to yield works very well; n-heat cows are automatically drafted out, so I found that really good too”. Peter said.
He also highlighted that he can milk 240 cows per hour that is completed at a comfortable pace. The backing door helps with cow-flow in the parlour.
Peter explained that he can feed individually for the cow or by the group, which in turn helps them to feed better.
Discussing MooMonitor, he said “We’re putting all our faith in it here at the moment, no tail painting or anything,”
This is the first Dairymaster milk tank that the Osbournes have used and it is connected to his smartphone to inform Peter if the power goes off or any other important alerts.
Some of the automated features;
- Commander control units,
- In-Parlour Feeding,
- Scraper backing gate,
- Milk Tank,
- MooMonitor+ Heat,
- Health Monitoring,
- Automatic Scrapers in the barns.
