DeLaval VMS™ V300 Supra+
DeLaval VMS™ V300 Supra+ comes with all the standard VMS features and the most advanced pregnancy detection and health identification system on the market. It will inform you if a cow is in heat, even the silent heats, and is at risk of developing clinical or subclinical mastitis or ketosis before any signs of sickness.
- Detects heat well beyond 95% by measuring progesterone
- Detects 80% of early stage mastitis cases, three days before physical signs are visible by measuring lactate dehydrogenase
- Detects 50% more cases of ketosis than visual inspection by measuring betahydroxybutyrate
- Detects urea to help balance feed protein

Successful reproduction management
With VMS V300 Supra+ you can get your cows pregnant at the right time. VMS V300 Supra+ supports you by automatically measuring the level of progesterone in milk, informing you when the cows is in heat, when they are pregnant, if there is an early embryonic loss and which cows have abnormal ovarian structures such as cysts.
Successful mastitis management
The milk component used to monitor udder health with VMS V300 Supra+ is Lactate Dehydrogenase (LDH), an enzyme that is highly correlated to somatic cell counts in new infections and detects an infection before it is visible to the human eye. Early detection of mastitis with VMS V300 Supra+ is the best way to improve udder health. Early detection may also means that less antibiotics used for fewer days, saving money.
Successful ketosis management
The fresh period is a critical stage for a dairy cow, she suffers form; metabolic changes, immunosuppression, negative energy balance (NEB) and elevated levels of stress; which can lead to increased incidence of diseases and decrease animal efficiency. Ketosis is a metabolic disease, frequently observed in high producing herds. It usually occurs within a few days to a few weeks after calving. VMS V300 Supra+ automatically monitors the BHB (beta hydroxybutyrate) in the milk after calving to diagnose sub clinical ketosis, allowing you to act early and prevent a loss in milk production and reduce veterinary costs.
Successful feed efficiency management
Feed represents a large proportion of the cost to produce milk. We understand your need to feed cows efficiently. VMS V300 Supra+ automatically analyses your herd’s feed efficiency by monitoring milk urea level and is a valuable tool to determine how well the cows in the herd are responding to changes in their ration. It can help determine if the ration has excess protein (a costly problem), or if adding a little more fermentable carbohydrates can give an increase in milk production. Small changes in the cost of a ration can make a big difference in the cash flow.
