DeLaval announces a new addition to its robotic milking system offering – DeLaval VMS™ V310

Stockholm, Sweden, 25 November 2019 – DeLaval introduces its latest addition to the VMS™ product line, the new DeLaval VMS™ milking system V310. The VMS™ V310 comes with the new DeLaval RePro™ that detects heat and pregnancy automatically during the milking process. With this new feature, the VMS™ V310 is extending its productivity advantage to the next generation of cows and dairy farmers.

DeLaval, a worldwide leader in milking equipment and solutions for dairy farmers, presents a new concept in automatic milking. The new DeLaval VMS™ V310 builds on the success of the VMS™ V300, launched in 2018. The features of DeLaval InControl™, DeLaval PureFlow™ and DeLaval InSight™ are standard on both systems with DeLaval RePro™ standard exclusively on the VMS™ V310.

DeLaval RePro™ provides dairy farmers with accurate insights into the reproductive status of each cow in the herd. Using progesterone based sampling and analysis, heat and pregnancy can be detected in real time as well as cows that are not cycling as they should. This new feature allows farmers to save both time and cost of managing reproduction and unwanted open days.

DeLaval VMS™ V310 is the first milking system that automatically confirms pregnant cows. This can result in healthier cows and reduced veterinarian costs due to cows becoming pregnant at the right time with more productive lactations.

“With the VMS V310, the robot is in charge of 90% of our tasks. Before we needed ultrasounds, but with RePro we hardly need them anymore because the system tells us when the cows are pregnant”, says Christian Legret, DeLaval VMS™ V310 owner, France.

With two models available, it gives the farmer the option to choose the voluntary milking system that best matches their needs and farming style. Both the VMS™ V300 and the VMS™ V310 feature the core functionality that can help ensure the cows are milked to their full potential, additionally the VMS™ V310 automatically confirms pregnancy.

The new DeLaval VMS™ milking system V310 will be available from 1 January 2020. If you wish to know more about the new DeLaval VMS™ series, visit www.delaval.com
