DeLaval Herringbone ML system really has been a game changer for us. The system has effectively helped us reduce work load and to manage our buffalo farm in a better way. We are also expanding the Milking Parlour now by adding more milking stations.
Indian Exotic Ice Creams Pvt. Ltd. also known as Noble Dairy Farm has been in the dairy farming business for the last three generations.
The temptation of doing things differently, labour challenges, expansion of business, space issue at present location and availability of technology for buffalo milking were the motivators for brothers Irfan and Imtiaz Patel to relocate the farm from urban area and try the concept of a large commercial farm which they were evaluating since the last couple of years.
‘We were advised by many of our business friends and relatives that mechanization in buffalo dairy farm is not successful and we shouldn’t take the risk. But we wanted to go with our instincts. We visited Sweden and Italy to learn how successful dairy farms were managing routines and utilizing advantages of mechanized systems for buffaloes. We found that DeLaval is the only player to offer proven Buffalo Milking Solutions,” says Imtiaz.
Irfan adds, “The DeLaval team guided us thoroughly from scratch with their support in farm designing & planning, project implementation and optimal selection of automation required. This is exactly what we wanted - a Single Window Solution. We installed a completely automated DeLaval Herringbone MidiLine Milking system with 24 Milking Units, Delaval Herd Management Software and DeLaval Mixer Wagon for automatic feeding.”
