An intelligent new Auto Mix + Spray unit from GEA’s FIL division is said to set a gold standard in teat spraying, providing farmers with an accurately mixed solution applied ‘fresh’ at every milking.
Yard washing, pumping and effluent screening gear will be on the GEA site at the Effluent Expo at Mystery Creek. The expo will be held on November 27 and 28.
Milking sheds have since April been more colourful, says GEA, with its FIL Active teat conditioner packaged in ‘vibrant pink’ drums.
Hamish Noakes’ Milkabit Farm uses a GEA rotary platform said to be the first of its kind in New Zealand.
GEA’s CowScout Responder accurately identifies cows on heat through remote technology, further allowing better understanding of a herd’s overall health.
Farms' demands for large water volumes requires water storage in tanks and troughs, with potential for contamination.
The world's first fully automated rotary platform, with 40 milking stalls, needs no routine ‘cups-on’.
Innovation in dairy technology from the GEA equipment range will include WestfaliaSurge and Milfos milking equipment, Houle effluent handling equipment and Norbco barn systems.
