New DeLaval barn system controller BSC awarded at EuroTier

Hanover, Germany (13 November 2012) At EuroTier 2012, the world’s largest trade show dedicated to agriculture, DeLaval barn system controller BSC was awarded the EuroTier silver medal for innovation. The system integrates barn environment and cow comfort to ensure healthy, productive cows and maximum milk yield. It’s the only integrated solution for dairy barns available on the market.

BSC is an integrated control system to handle all barn applications in one unit. Barn environment technologies like panels, curtains, circulating fans, illumination, cow cooling, alley cleaning, gutter cleaning and manure transfer are all handled in an easy, integrated way contributing to higher efficiency and lower environmental impact.

“Sustainability, user-friendliness and optimal animal welfare have been the three primary objectives throughout our product development phase. This medal recognizes the importance of these objectives but it also demonstrates that we, DeLaval, as a company are committed to improving cow comfort and animal welfare by delivering complete and integrated solutions,” says Emmanuel Geoffroy, Business Development Manager Portfolio Effluent Housing Systems at DeLaval.

BSC special features, such as one graphical user interface for the operator instead of various different ones makes it easy to handle and convenient to operate, especially as an icon-based user interface. While the controller is handling all the equipment, interlinked functions are possible to command through one interface.

The dairy farmer will save time and money whilst improving the cow’s comfort in a sustainable way. “DeLaval barn system controller BSC can reduce the investment cost by up to 70 percent compared to installing one system for each separate function,” says Alfred Kroeger, Product Manager, Ventilation & Illumination, Portfolio Farm Supplies at DeLaval.

DeLaval at EuroTier
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. This is what we believe.
