The ultimate automatic milking machine. The Voluntary Milking System VMS™ enables you to harvest the maximum milk yield from your herd, while freeing-up time for you and your staff to focus on other duties.
- Optimal performance
- Maximize milking output
Made better by
- 100% Stainless steel stall
- Hydraulic robotic arm
The extreme heavy duty all stainless steel stall provides perfect harmony between design and engineering. The robot arm, gates and robot frame are electro polished to give the station its unique, award-winning look and allow for easy cleaning. The rest of the station is made of either brushed or painted stainless steel. The robotic arm provides strength and reliability as well as consistent performance no matter the atmospheric conditions. The hydraulic mechanism operates for only 3 or 4 hours. Therefore, energy consumption is very low compared to the continual operation of a compressor.
Improve milk quality and animal health
- True quarter milking
- Built-in cleaning system
- Teat preparation system
Prior to milking, the teats are treated to remove impurities and keep them soft and supple, while promoting quick milk let down. DeLaval VMS has ICAR approved milk measuring per quarter to assure cow friendly, accurate take off. The teat cleaning cup and the milking cups are rinsed inside and out between each cow, minimizing the risk of bacteria transfer. Once the milking is complete, the teats are sprayed with DeLaval VMS approved teat disinfectant. The uniform teat coverage protects teats and udders against bacteria.
The technical and herd management support you will receive from DeLaval and from its dealership network comes from focused professionals. That is what they do; that is their passion. They offer a lot of expertise and knowledge. Our objective is that you, as a dairy producer, should not waste any time on technical issues, but rather spend the extra time that the VMS provides you in managing other areas within your enterprise.
- DelPro Personalizable Software
- Multi-functional manure plate
- Easy to clean feed manger
DeLaval VMS offers users a friendly touch screen giving complete control during milking. The multi-functional manure plate automatically follows the movement of the cow which ensures faster attachment and diverts animal waste away from the stall. The stainless steel feed manger is self-draining, so it is easy to keep clean. And the position adjusts automatically to fit to each individual cow. The DeLaval DelPro software is personalized to your needs. This flexibility means doing things when it suits you.
Improve milking efficiency
- Faster attachment
- Smart take-off
- Synchronization with the cooling
DeLaval VMS seeks the teat faster, gaining around 15 minutes per day. Since some cows have very big milking time differences between the quarters, taking off earlier from such quarter did not result in higher udder health risks or loosing milk yield. This feature results in shorter milking times and higher capacity. With DeLaval VMS, there is also improved communication between it and the cooling system. DeLaval VMS can remain milking while milk collection starts. DeLaval VMS can also start cleaning before the cooling tank is finished emptying, adding 15 minutes more capacity per day for milking.
DeLaval body condition scoring BCS
Accurate body condition scores enable better feed planning, which helps to ensure your cows have healthy body fat reserves. This promotes milk production, reproductive efficiency and cow longevity. The DeLaval BCS is a fully automated scoring system that eliminates the guesswork and inaccuracies of manual evaluation.
