First VMS V300 installation in the UK
This first installation was completed by DeLaval dealer Fullwoodhead Dairy Supplies LTD at the Harrison’s family farm in West Linton installing two VMS V300. The Harrison family with 380 Holstein Friesian cows decided to utilise these new robots milking 120 of their highest yielding cows. The remaining 210 are still milked using a DeLaval 25/50 Midi-Line Swing-Over Parlour system, installed in 2013.
The 120 cows that are put though the robots are high yielding cows, allowing them to reach their maximum potential optimising productivity. There is currently a vast amount of capacity yet available as idle time sits at over 6 hours per machine! This means that they have the opportunity to add more cows to the system, further utilising the new technology whilst improving work efficiency.
