Hottest new dairy technology designed in New Zealand

Hottest new dairy technology designed in New Zealand

Technology designed to bring the power of intelligent communication and unprecedented future proofing to dairy farmers’ milking systems will be highlighted at National Fieldays.

The product in the spotlight at this year’s show (11-14 June) on the Waikato Milking Systems stand is a newly designed product known as the Bail Marshal.

The New Zealand owned company’s Chief Executive Dean Bell says the innovative product has been designed to enable all technology devices on a milking system to work together seamlessly and continually communicate with each other.

“I believe the Bail Marshal will be the hottest new dairy technology device farmers will find they absolutely have to have,” Mr Bell says.

Waikato Milking Systems is the largest 100% New Zealand owned dairy technology designer and manufacturer. The company exports to more than 30 countries around the world and has dealers nationwide.

At National Fieldays, the company will display its high performing milking system designs, including rotary and herringbone designs. It will showcase its latest and best technology devices designed to save farmers time, money and labour in the dairy.

The Bail Marshal is one of a range of technology devices Waikato Milking Systems will have on display that help improve the efficiency of dairy farming businesses.

“The Bail Marshal is an intelligent communication device that brings an unbeatable level of integration, simplicity and future proofing to milking systems. With one at every milking point, the Bail Marshal manages connectivity and communication between all bail devices easily and effectively,” Mr Bell says.

Other technology devices Waikato Milking Systems will have on display at National Fieldays will include its popular automated range of products including SmartECRS (electronic cup removers), SmartD-TECT (automatic mastitis detection technology) and SmartSPRAY (a highly effective and labour saving automatic teat spray system for rotary milking systems).

Visit the Waikato Milking Systems site at M8 and F52 (on the corner of M Rd and F St) at National Fieldays, Mystery Creek Events Centre, 11-14 June 2014.
