Dairymaster’s objective is to make dairy farming more profitable, enjoyable and sustainable. The company has carved out a reputation, both nationally and internationally, for providing hi-tech solutions for dairy farming and is recognised as one of the world’s most innovative companies in agriculture having won numerous innovation awards worldwide for its product range.
Dairymaster’s innovative product range encompasses five key areas: Milking Equipment; Automated Feeding Systems; Manure Scrapers; Cow Health & Fertility Monitoring as well as Milk Cooling and Heat Recovery technology.
Dairymaster’s milking systems are different, they milk each cow an average of one minute faster and deliver 5% more yield in scientific trials. The reason for this is that the vacuum profile applied at a cow’s teat-end is similar to that of a calf – a design unique to Dairymaster parlours. Their focus is not just on the livestock. The milking machine can talk to the operator through the entire process like a dairy sat nav for the farmer.
The Swiftflo Commander is essentially an iPad for cows. It is the new brain of the milking parlour, controlling everything to do with milking, feeding and animal health. It has next generation touchpad technology meaning it is extremely robust, easy to clean and fully water resistant. Dairymaster uses this smart technology to ensure farmers have the latest features and capability into the future.
The MooMonitor+ is bringing wearable technology to the farmyard and is helping to change the face of agriculture. When they developed the next generation MooMonitor+, they utilised technology from cloud computing, wearable sensing and big data to make health and reproductive monitoring better. They also used technology from rockets and smart phones to give farmers real-time information about the health and fertility status of each cow in their herd.
Dairymaster does the opposite to more expected business practices. It researches, develops and manufactures in one location. This integrated manufacturing model has allowed capability to be built, strengthened team building and has helped engender a culture where information and ideas are shared and a strong determination to succeed evident in all areas. Their aim is to build better products and to be the best in the world at what they do.
