DeLaval introduced the world’s first automatic milking rotary, AMR™, at EuroTier 2010 attracting dairy producers looking for ways to achieve greater efficiency, productivity and profitability. According to Robert Jensen, Business Development Manager at DeLaval International, DeLaval teat spray robot TSR™ is a natural spin-off solution from AMR.
“Farmers spend several hours a day manually post spraying teats after milking. Some up to 20 hours or more per day. TSR automatically sprays each teat helping to reduce labour at a time when farmers have difficulty hiring skilled employees,” says Robert Jensen.
According to DeLaval, another advantage of TSR includes its consistent operation which can help keep cows calm. Robert Jensen adds, “We know from our experience with DeLaval voluntary milking system VMS™ and AMR that cows like a predictable barn environment. Farmers can also create a good environment for their cows by using TSR.”
Teat dip consumption and coverage are consistently managed with TSR, which positively contributes to farm profitability. Consumption per cow depends on the product, its viscosity, and chosen spray pattern, but the system’s accuracy and uniformity will help keep conditions optimal for good udder health.
TSR is a stand alone unit designed for external milking rotaries. The cows are sprayed right after take-off at the end of rotation, not in the exit lane where bottlenecks can occur. Advanced technology contributes to the robot’s speed and precision – serving up to 400 cows/hour.
DeLaval teat spray robot TSR will be available in limited numbers in 2013 with a full launch in 2014. Already this year, it was awarded the highest recognition, three stars, possible in the European News category by Agromek – Northern Europe’s largest agricultural fair.

The demand for more food will continue to increase reaching twice as much as today by 2050. In order to reach that level, it will require a complete new way to look at food production. It will require many individuals and companies to add their efforts. At DeLaval, we believe that it is time to look at things differently, time to make sustainable food production possible. Using the most advanced herd management software to increase the productivity of the farm is essential. So is setting extra efforts to increase the health of the herd with advanced hygiene products and consumables plus removing physically demanding efforts from the operators and working on the social dimension.
