DeLaval offers a range of parallel and herringbone parlors that are adapted to your dairy's needs.
Rotary parlour milking is a proven concept. Rotary parlours are labour efficient milking parlours for dairies requiring a high cow throughput per hour. Cows are very calm and the milking routine is the same for every cow, every day.
Milk yield has increased steadily over the past few years so now your old milking equipment may need to handle up to 50 percent more milk than previously. Outdated milking equipment, which is inadequate for your present milk production, will cause problems with milk quality and udder health. Your milking equipment is normally in operation for four to six hours per day, 365 days per year. This is something like 1500 to 2 000 hours per year. Clearly then, milking equipment must be up-to-date in order to optimally perform. Milking equipment strongly influences your profit margins. DeLaval offers milk production solutions designed to meet your current needs and allow for future expansion.
At the milking point
DeLaval ensures efficient milking with our range of DeLaval milking points, with DeLaval clusters and pulsation, plus original liners and tubes.
Cooling, storage & testing
Rapid and efficient milk cooling is essential for preserving milk quality. Milk leaves the udder at approximately 35°C and the heat in fresh milk must be quickly removed. Milk retains a natural resistance to bacteria immediately after extraction, but only rapid cooling to a storage temperature of around 4°C to 6°C, prevents or minimizes further micro-organism growth. DeLaval offers most comprehensive range of technical, on-farm milk cooling equipment globally, because we recognize the importance of effective cooling to quality milk production.
Udder health & hygiene
Udder health is essential for a healthy, productive and profitable herd. DeLaval offers a range of products to aid in the udder health and hygiene of your cows.
The quality of the milk that you produce is vital in maintaining the profitability of your dairy operation. Choosing the right consumable products is important. Liners, filters, teat dips, detergents and even vacuum pump oils are all critical to the successful performance of your operation. You can’t run your dairy without them.
