DeLaval has unveiled its new P100 parlour, specifically designed with family farms and grassland customers in mind.
According to the company, the new parlour delivers a smoother milking process using fewer resources and enabling the right automation to be used for every single farm.
DeLaval P100 parlour
The parlour results from many years of developing, testing, and input from customers, focusing on work efficiency, animal welfare, and farm profitability.
The firm believes the DeLaval P100 “is the right choice for farmers who would like to milk the easy way”.
The first P100 test farms globally have been in Ireland.
Gary Edwards, capital solution manager UK & Ireland, said:
“With the P100, we present a sequential bailing parlour that combines simplicity, functionality and extraordinary efficiency in a conventional exit system.”
“Keeping the milker in mind, the new straight rump rail provides excellent visibility to see the cows during milking,”
With the DeLaval P100, sequential bailing system cows stand at 90 degrees to the operator.
Whether you have a highly advanced management system like DelPro connected or a standalone system, the P100 is compatible with both.
“We are pleased with the reactions from our customers and the feedback we received from the installations.”
“These farms are extremely important to us. We are more than happy with the performance achieved from the DeLaval P100 parlour.”
The company claims that the DeLaval P100’s features “fit perfectly into the philosophy of creating a simple but highly effective milking system”.
They state that the DeLaval P100 parlour is easy to install. Due to its conventional exit, it fits easily into existing buildings as retrofit installation.
“The features of the P100 perfectly complement our range of products on offer to our customers.”
