Do you want to have one of the most advanced revolver rotary parlours?
The Dairymaster Swiftflo Revolver Rotary Milking parlour is one of the world's most advanced rotary parlour systems. All of our technology in conventional parlours may be utilized in this system as well as many new developments in this unique design.
The parlour does the work for you!
In a fully automated parlour each cow wears transponder ear tags, these register with the computer as they pass the electronic reader and each cow is automatically identified by Dairymaster Technology. The cluster positioning arm holds the cluster in the optimum position behind the cow while milking. Our unique design means that shorter milking tubes are used which reduces maintenance costs and improves milking characteristics. The operator easily moves the cluster arm into position behind the cow thus ensuring proper alignment. Operator and cow comfort is of paramount importance to Dairymaster. Optimum udder presentation speeds up cluster attachment enabling the operator to milk with ease, speed and a minimum of stress. A double modular rump rail not only improves cow comfort and facilitates easier access for the operator but also minimises the risk of the operator being kicked. Platform speed can be adjusted by the operator at any stage during the milking process from the operator console.
The majority of the equipment is located inside the rotary turntable ensuring a longer working life and a cleaner, safer milking environment.
The central gland is one of the key components in all rotary milking systems. Dairymaster has engineered its rotary glands to be the most technologically advanced in the world.
Two unique features of the Swiftflo revolver are the Cow Motivator and Auto Retention. Our intelligent software programme, the milk manager, monitors cows on the platform and works in conjunction with the Cow Motivator to encourage forgetful cows to leave the platform when they have been milked. As cows enter onto the platform an auto retention device drops into place behind the cow. The milk manager program checks each cows yield and milking time against her normal statistics and if outside user defined limits the retention device will retain the cow and send her back to the operator again. If a cow's statistics are as normal when the cow is fully milked the Auto Retention device lifts and the Automatic Cluster Remover removes the cluster gently away from the cow and she easily reverses off the platform.
We have a design especially for you...
Equipment levels are dependent on the level of automation desired by a particular farmer. Some farmers have chosen to install fully automated Swiftflo Revolvers immediately whereas others have installed plants with a view to adding automation features later. The Swiftflo Revolver may be designed in a range of sizes to meet the needs of each customer. Our design team are on hand to assist with all aspects of parlour design and our highly experienced technical staff can provide comprehensive advice and assistance.
The cow is automatically identified…How?
In a fully automated parlour each cow wears transponder ear tags, these register with the computer as they pass the electronic reader and each cow is automatically identified by Dairymaster Technology. As each cow enters the parlour, the system will call out any message that you have entered for a specific cow. This message can be repeated during cluster alignment. Upon entering the rotary a small amount of feed is dispensed to the cow which encourages fast loading. When the unit is being attached the remainder of her allocated feed is dispensed, this usually results in a more content cow when the cluster is attached. Scientific trials have also shown higher levels of oxytocin are present when cows are fed during milking.
The best build quality!
Building layout is an important aspect of any milking facility or housing complex. Overall efficiency can be enhanced by optimum parlour and building layout. In addition cleaning costs can be reduced and cow flow improved dramatically by implementing best design practices. The Dairymaster design team will tailor a plan for your parlour to cater for your specific needs. Dairymaster have extensive experience over the last number of decades in parlour design and in the layout of facilities.
Our rotary is constructed from heavy gauge steel in individual sections and then hot dipped galvanised for maximum protection and ensures a longer life span for your parlour.
Protecting your investment...
When milking is completed, it is necessary to connect the platform to a stationary wash arm. Upon flicking a switch on the control panel automatic parking will be activated. This will automatically align the platform to the correct washing position without the operator having to wait beside the control panel.
Automatic skirt washing is an optional extra, this cleans the rotary skirt as the platform revolves. The skirt washing also uses water in addition to mechanical brush washing, this water is supplied through the rotary gland. Automatic skirt washing reduces the amount of washing and improves parlour hygiene and appearance.
The opportunity to possibly increase milk payments…
As farms are getting larger the
Dairymaster ClusterCleanse is an immense aid for improving milking
hygiene and is of great assistance for farmers fighting the battle
against the spread of contagious mastitis during milking such as
The Dairymaster ClusterCleanse rinses each cluster after each cow is milked which results in a more hygienic cluster for the next cow. This reduces the risk of "cow-to-cow" cross infection and contagious mastitis. Lower SCC means higher milk quality payments and better herd health.
Normally when a cow that is infected with Staph Aureus bacteria is milked, these bacteria remain in the liner in large quantities and can be spread to subsequent cows. Usually this is controlled by segregating cows with an infection and milking them last. The Dairymaster ClusterCleanse eliminates this requirement.
Decades of experience providing the best solutions.
The continued growth of the Dairymaster brand worldwide and the increased demand for Dairymaster equipment is due to its popularity with farmers all over the world, who value the high performance capabilities of the equipment and its innovative features.
