Several trends are beginning to shape the future of the dairy farming industry. Some of the most important are demands for greater automation, higher milk quality and more natural and humane conditions for both dairy herds as well as farmers.
DeLaval will help you meet all of these challenges. That is why the VMS has been developed to be the new generation of automated milking system, that is voluntary entered by the cow as soon as she wants to be milked. The system then automatically cleans the teats, carries out the milking, feeds the cows and keeps records of the milk yield.
Multi purpose arm
The multi purpose arm is modelled on the natural flexibility and range of movement of the human arm to readily accommodate udder and teat irregularities. It also effectively handles all teat cleaning, teat cup attachment and disinfection, and it acts as an intelligent service arm. The touch screen interface provides you with fast and intuitive control over your VMS. Easy access to the cows udder facilitates visual inspection and removes the need for a milking pit.
Laser and camera
The combination of a laser and a vision camera really 'sees' the teats. This technology allows for efficient teat detection and quick teat cup attachment.
The VMS makes quarter milking possible. Four optical indicators measure flow, quantity, milking time and quality from individual teats, and one FloMaster milk meter measures yield. A specially designed receiver unit collects the milk around the clock to ensure top quality.
Teat cup cleaning
Water based teat cleaning with unique separate teat cup cleaning, provides for optimal hygiene and meets the most demanding requirements. The combined pre-milking and teat cleaning activities are totally separate from the milking circuit. It also features back-flushing and outside cleaning of the teat cups. Teat cups are designed for easy liner change.
Stainless steel tandem
The easy to clean, stainless steel tandem box is a cow friendly structure that helps to encourage the cows to keep coming back, thereby creating a Voluntary Milking System - VMS.
Clean Milking Area
The manure plate automatically lowers into place, according to the length of each individual cow, to divert splashing manure away from the milking area.
When the cow is identified, the manger frame adjusts to each individual cows length, and feed is dispensed into the manger.
