new feature coming with the VMS V300. Lastly, DeLaval
InSightTM, the latest in vision technology for a smooth, fast
and accurate attachment.
DeLaval OptiDuo
The DeLaval OptiDuo is more than a conventional
feed pusher, but a feed refresher, remixing feed, then
repositioning the feed closer to the feed fence. "With the
unique twin-spiralled rotating auger it avoids compacting
feed, combined with smart navigation ensures it's always
where it's supposed to be. The DeLaval OptiDuo easily fi lls
any gaps in feed, ensuring that the strands of roughage
remain intact making feed much more appetising and
reducing stress for less dominant animals when at the feed
fence. With the option to add a concentrate dispenser, the
OptiDuoTM can further entice cows back to the feeding
fence."
DeLaval DelPro Companion
DelPro Companion is developed to work with dairy farmers,
not only displaying animal information but also supporting
their working routines to record all the important events as
they happen throughout the day. Having immediate access
to animal information via a mobile device wherever you are
requires that the farm database from DelPro Farm Manager
is mirrored on your device. The spokesperson adds:
Therefore, DelPro Companion automatically synchronises
recent events between your mobile device and the farm
server. The result is a responsive user experience where you
are able to recall milking, feeding, body condition score,
activity and all recorded events without any delay."
DeLaval E100
The new DeLaval E100 rotary is focused around the four
customer challenges: animal welfare, milk quality, farm
profi tability and work e ciency. "Understanding modern
dairy farmer's everyday challenges, the new E100 rotary
has focused on the key areas of performance: DeLaval
CockpitTM which puts the operator in control of the whole
milking process and allows for a one-man operation rotary;
DeLaval FastlaneTM, designed to increase cow throughput
on the exit and entry of the parlour, increasing e ciency;
DeLaval Comfort BailTM, a unique low profi le bail that
provides a calmer milking and increases cow throughput;
and DeLaval Topfl owTM, which provides a gentle milking
cluster giving stable and lower vacuum during milking.
When Willem put the new DeLaval VMS
TM
V300 to work, he had growth in mind, and
not only does the increase in ef ciency
give him 10% more capacity to grow his
herd, he can add more VMS V300 units
over time; easily and cost-effectively.

Willem about how he made the new VMS
V300 his Milking System, and discover why
