DeLaval VMS™ V300 is Aneminde Farm’s Star Performer

As a test farm for the DeLaval VMS™ V300, this Danish dairy quickly realized the power of the new robot’s improved attachment system – faster milking, more milk production and greater milking capacity.

FARM PROFILE

Soren Hojgaard Andersen is a fifth generation dairy producer milking 155 cows an average of 2.6 times a day with three DeLaval VMS units. Aneminde Farm sits on 642 acres and produces over 4 million pounds of organic milk a year.

FARM DESCRIPTION

Aneminde Farm in Løgstör, Denmark, continues to raise the bar on performance. The farm purchased VMS units in 2008 and 2013, but the new VMS V300 installed on-farm in 2017 is their best performer. The family-run dairy milks 155 cows in a four-row barn with one feeding alley and pre-selection cow traffic. They use sand bedding.

You want to make good milk as much as possible. If you look at the milking numbers, and the performance on milking, it is very good.

Farm profitability: More milk – faster

Aneminde’s VMS V300 milks up to a minute faster than its two older VMS units, which allows for 35 extra milkings a day. The new robot also milks more effectively, resulting in 0.5 to 1 kilograms of additional milk harvested per milking.

Animal Welfare: Stress-free, 100% accurate attachment

The VMS V300 is equipped with DeLaval InSight™ – the most technologically advanced attachment system in the world. With improved software and a state-of-the-art camera, attaching to the teat is now smoother and more accurate. According to Soren, there is also no teaching required for new cows and heifers.
