Robotic Milking sales reach 10,000 for DeLaval
Jonas Hällman, Director of Automatic Milking Systems for DeLaval International said in a statement that this achievement indicates the direction in which the industry is heading with “more on-farm automation and integrated dairy farm management technology.”
Founded in Sweden, DeLaval first sold their first generation VMS in 1998, which allows for round-the-clock milking with record-setting milk yields and top milk quality. The VMS also includes a touchscreen and upgrade possibilities.
The new owners of the 10,000th DeLaval VMS are Doug and Lynda Jefferson and Andrew and Amanda Den Haan, who have been milking their 50-cow herd with a double-4 DeLaval herringbone parlour for the last 40 years.
