At EuroTier 2014 DeLaval is showcasing the following key innovations:

DeLaval InService™ Remote- silver medal winner for innovations

DeLaval InService™ Remote secures dairy farm equipment performance by remote monitoring 24/7.  The system measures and calculates alarms for corrective action on the farm to maintain optimal milking standards. Monitoring and maintaining the correct vacuum and pulsation levels contribute to a better yield, optimised throughput and maintained udder health. In addition, this results in reduced medical and veterinary costs.

DeLaval cow LED CL6000/CL 9000 - increases milk production by up to 10% and saves energy costs by 75%

DeLaval cow LED CL6000/CL 9000, the first and only barn illumination, which is led by the needs of cows rather than the requirements of humans.  DeLaval has adapted the light in matter of wave lengths and light distribution to what cows need. This simple fact will lead to a 75% reduction in energy costs while keeping a 7-10% increase in milk production.

DeLaval body condition scoring BCS - take the guess work out of scoring your cow

DeLaval body condition scoring BCS is the first system that automatically generates body condition scores of a walking cow. This provides farmers, vets and feed advisors daily body condition scoring from the complete herd – taking away the guess work. The system can be used to monitor individual cows, groups and herds to adjust feed management and to bring it to optimum efficiency impacting farm profitability.

DeLaval cell counter ICC -measure your somatic cell count quickly, saving time and money

DeLaval cell counter ICC – a quick and easy tool to measure somatic cell count SCC in milk. The ICC test is fast and convenient. It is done in only 45 seconds, as opposed to days and instantly gives the farmer the result of the SCC value and a picture of the milk sample. This saves time and money. It works in conjunction with an iPhone, iPod Touch and the DeLaval ICC app.

DeLaval mini swinging brush MSB - improve calf and goat health

DeLaval mini swinging brush MSB, this new brush has been exclusively developed and designed for calves and goats. It improves calf and goat health and keeps them calm and clean. The brush is energy efficient, with its 24V motor located in the cylinder and is adaptable in height to adjust to the size of the fast growing animals.

DeLaval MidiLine™ swingarm MSA30 - optimal tube alignment in swing over parlours

DeLaval MidiLine™ swingarm MSA30 - the new integrated MidiLine™ swingarm MSA30 incorporates an ACR cylinder, milk and air tubing, comfort start and indicator lamp into a single aluminimum design. It provides optimal tube alignment in swing over parlours, thus improving milking routines and ergonomics.

DeLaval cluster support arm CSA20 - improve ergonomic conditions for milkers

DeLaval cluster support arm CSA20 - practical and clever for high quality milking performance. The new cluster support arm CSA20 from DeLaval combines a slim functional design, improved milkers’ ergonomics and milking performance into one solution. It is like a helping hand: with its multi-joint design, it mimics the human arm following the movement of milkers as they guide and support clusters to and from the udder. Due to its smooth flexible action, DeLaval CSA20 is able to follow every small movement made by cows during milking too.

DeLaval Harmony ™ Clover edition – the best got better!

Since DeLaval introduced the Harmony™ cluster 20 years ago, it has gained a reputation of very highest performance milking as well as being one of the most hygienic, durable and easiest to use clusters on the market. DeLaval Harmony™ unique top-unloading claw (Patented DeLaval Top Flow technology) combined with large diameter, free-flow DeLaval Harmony™ is now combined with the DeLaval  Clover™ liner.

DeLaval milking point MP170 – less is more!

The new milking point MP170 is the simple step to Herd Management. It is the brother of MP150 and the logical step forward after take offs. It’s the way to collect yields and cow numbers and built an accurate database to help you managing your herd in a simple way using ALPRO™ herd management software.

DeLaval adaptive flow controlled cooling - adjust your cooling capacity to match tank conditions

DeLaval adaptive flow controlled cooling AFCC-most cooling devices function at full capacity regardless of milk volume. Adaptive FCC can adapt its capacity to match conditions in the tank thus eliminating freezing risk while keeping cooling times short.

EuroTier 2014 visitors are invited to see these key innovations in action at the DeLaval booth, Hall 27, stand H39.
