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.
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.
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.
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.
