GEA Milking and Cooling - WestfaliaSurge
Many WestfaliaSurge products and systems will be on display at AgFest Field Days. Regardless of your herd size or parlour design, WestfaliaSurge have systems for all requirements, regardless of whether you are milking cows, goats or sheep. WestfaliaSurge systems for buffalo, camel and horses are also in use in various parts of the world.
The range of WestfaliaSurge equipment starts with single cow bucket milkers through to fully automatic milking robotic milking systems. However, for pasture farms in Australia, the more common systems include automatic cluster removal, milk metering, automatic drafting, auto weighing all using NLIS ear tags for cow identification. For heat detection, the same automatic systems are used but they utilise activity monitoring rescounters on the cows neck or leg rather than NLIS ear tags. There is a WestfaliaSurge system to suit all requirements.
WestfaliaSurge have recently released the IQ Cluster onto the world market. The IQ Cluster is the first real four quarter cluster on the market and it uses a patented vacuum shut off ball that changes the way a milking cluster operates. The IQ Cluster will be operating at the WestfaliaSurge demonstration at AgFest. Come and see for yourself.
Calf rearing is a big part of every dairy farm operation. At AgFest you will be able to see the WestfaliaSurge range of Automatic Calf feeders offering a range of options with whole milk or milk powder calf feeders.
