DelPro™ Farm Manager is a revolutionary system combining information and technology from different areas of the dairy farm. It monitors, records and analyses data with a high level of consistency and reliability helping farmers make informed, profitable decisions about their dairy operation. The unique system also allows herd managers to customize their working protocols for easier decision making.
Launched at the EuroTier exhibition in Hanover, Germany (Nov. 13 – 16), DelPro Farm Manager integrates DeLaval milking, feeding and automation systems together in one centralized system. It will be available starting in the Northern Hemisphere in December 2012.
The new system has strong analytical power, an easy-to-use interface and includes new modules for managing health, reproduction, feeding, veterinary care, labour and parlour performance.
“The key to managing a successful dairy is in having a complete picture of the operation at any moment, which goes way beyond separate sets of data for individual aspects of the farm. DelPro Farm Manager provides all-in-one intelligent reports with aggregated and analyzed information to help the farmer manage risk, optimize returns and improve efficiency,” says Fernando Mazeris, Director of Farm Management Support Systems at DeLaval.
For example, the system’s reports for vet visits, timed AI and vaccinations are practical tools to help farmers manage more efficiently. Furthermore, with the addition of DeLaval Herd Navigator™ – an advanced milk analysis tool – farmers are able to program and customize their standard operating procedures using DelPro Farm Manager. The system communicates with Herd Navigator on what action to take with each individual animal in the herd.
DelPro Farm Manager works with all DeLaval milking solutions – voluntary milking system VMS™, stanchion barn milking units, parlours and rotaries, including automatic milking rotary AMR™. Its flexibility extends to any herd size, and farmers can change or upgrade their equipment without having to change farm management systems.
With an internet connection, users of the new software package can keep a virtual eye on their operation anytime, anywhere with DeLaval Remote Farm Connection – a secure way to also let advisors and technicians view in real-time the farm’s progress. DelPro Farm Manager can be interfaced using a PC, laptop and touch screen. A smartphone app is available for VMS.
Current customers can easily upgrade their system to DelPro Farm Manager. It will be available starting in the Northern Hemisphere and everywhere else after July 2013.
