Dairy farmers planning on expanding their business might find a trip to the DeLaval stand at the Ploughing of interest this week.

Steve Sefton, DeLaval sales director, says the DeLaval technical support team will be present to advise farmers on parlour upgrades, added value accessories, preventative maintenance, dairy hygiene and animal welfare solutions.

DeLaval personnel will be on the EC Pratt and Co stand supporting their dealers.

Visitors to the stand will be entered into a free draw for the DeLaval FMC60 monitoring camera.

It can be set up in minutes and has a range of up to 1,000m.

An infrared night vision lamp, the NVL120, can also be installed and can be connected to the internet so you can view images on your smartphone.

DeLaval is also launching a new range of dairy hygiene products at Ploughing. Dairy farmers with larger herds or those looking to expand production after milk quotas are abolished can discuss future options like the DeLaval Voluntary Milk System (VMS).

The VMS system has been shown to work well on grassland systems in Britain and New Zealand.

There are also a number of VMS systems working in Northern Ireland.

The system is equipped with one milk meter for each quarter to record time, yield, flow, conductivity and blood.

Each teat is individually cleaned with warm water and air, before being stimulated, pre-milked and dried before milking.
