Cardiff, Wales, Monday 25th February – The NEW voluntary milking system DeLaval VMS V300, which was launched last summer, has now been installed in the UK at Hyndfordwell Farm, West Linton, Scotland.
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 320 Holstein Friesian cows decided to utilise these new robots milking 120 of their highest yielding cows. The remaining cows are still milked using a DeLaval 25/50 Midi-Line Swing-Over Parlour system, installed in 2013.
The 120 cows using 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.
By kind permission of the Harrison family, DeLaval Ltd and their local dealer Fullwoodhead Dairy Supplies Ltd, invite you to attend an Open Day on:
Wednesday 13th March 2019 11am - 4pm
Hyndfordwell Farm, West Linton, EH46 7AA Scotland

“The VMS V300 has seen vast improvements on the previous model and we can put this down to three key hero features – DeLaval InSight, DeLaval InControl & DeLaval Pureflow.” – Rhona Millar VMS District Sales Manager.
