No or­di­nary milk­ing ma­chine

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

When Shane and Sarah Gold­smith de­cided to build a new farm dairy they chose a Her­ring­bone.

The 30 bail mid-line swing-over with a Waikato Milk­ing Sys­tems 75mm Loopline of­fered a sound milk­ing plat­form and came with a rep­u­ta­tion of low main­te­nance, good solid per­for­mance and on­go­ing re­li­a­bil­ity.

Shane and Sarah’s Loopline is no or­di­nary milk­ing ma­chine.

It in­cludes many unique fea­tures mak­ing it one of most ad­vanced milk­ing sys­tems in the dis­trict. Not only does the Waikato Loopline pro­vide ex­cel­lent vac­uum sta­bil­ity and fast milk­ing speed its per­for­mance is fur­ther en­hanced with the ad­di­tion of SmartD-Tect and Waikato’s new swing­ing arm.

Us­ing SmartD-Tect, milk­ers can iden­tify po­ten­tial mas­ti­tis prob­lems and re­move or treat cows long be­fore they be­come ma­jor con­cerns or con­tam­i­nate milk in the bulk tank.

Swing­ing arms en­sure cor­rect clus­ter align­ment, im­prove ud­der health and cre­ate a more open and un­clut­tered pit area in which to work.

Vari­able speed vac­uum and milk pump con­trollers max­imise plant ef­fi­ciency and re­duce en­ergy costs while main­tain­ing a quiet work­ing en­vi­ron­ment.

A Hur­ri­cane slug wash sys­tem us­ing a pow­er­ful, 32mm ad­justable elec­tronic air in­jec­tor de­vel­oped by Waikato Milk­ing Sys­tems specif­i­cally for this pur­pose en­sures the milk­ing sys­tem is cleaned prop­erly ev­ery time, elim­i­nat­ing the need to man­u­ally clean re­ceivers and san­i­tary traps af­ter each wash. It’s the lit­tle things that im­pact the most. With one easy pull down mo­tion, the en­tire Jet­ter sys­tem swings down and presents the clus­ter wash­ers to the op­er­a­tor.

The ease in which this sys­tem op­er­ates makes it a breeze to use and con­sid­er­ably speeds up the wash set-up process.

Sup­plied by Waikato Milk­ing Sys­tems the 30 bail Loopline for Golden In­vest­ments was in­stalled by Morley Engi­neer­ing Ser­vices Ltd in Mata­mata.
