CINCINNATI, OH, June 24, 2013 /CNW/ - Dairymaster will be showing dairy producers how they can make their operations more efficient at the first Precision Dairy Conference to be held in the USA, at the Mayo Centre in Rochester, Minnesota this week. The Company is not only a leader in integrating technology into farming, but its products are proven to increase yields, improve animal health and keeps milk fresh for longer, safer and with less expenditure on power.
"Our milking parlors have been tested and those tests showed that they produce 5% more milk, milk each cow an average a minute faster. They also reduce squawking and, in turn, that cuts down on mastitis. Because of advanced technologies our rotaries are operating with fewer labor units. This is science applied to make producers' lives easier and more profitable" said Dr Edmond Harty, CEO & Technical Director, Dairymaster. "This is why we are proud to be a platinum sponsor of the United States' first ever precision dairy conference."
The effectiveness of Dairymaster's solutions is demonstrated through their strategic partnership with Select Sires, one of the country's largest AI companies. Dairymaster's heat detection system - the most accurate heat detection system on the market is sold as Select Detect in the USA.
Dairymaster's Select Detect Mobile app revolutionised the dairy industry, allows dairy producers more freedom and flexibility, while still allowing them to increase pregnancy rate. The app has changed the way fertility is managed and is very successful to date.
Dairymaster focus is on improving performance and it has focused on how to use technologies as diverse as accelerometers, nanotechnology and motion sensors combined with an intimate knowledge of dairy farming and the behaviour of cattle. That has produced a suite of high performance products for milking, feeding, cooling, manure scrapers and heat detection that allows for almost every aspect of herd management to be automated.
"Automating herd management is only scratching the surface of what our equipment can do," says Harty. "What it can do is treat each cow within the herd as an individual. She can be milked, inseminated, fed and medicated according to her individual needs which means more profit for dairy producers."
Earlier this month Dr Harty was a finalist for World Entrepreneur of the Year by Ernst and Young in a prestigious competition which has been dubbed the Oscars of the business world after successfully winning the national competition, "This award is recognition of Dairymaster's strategy for sustainable growth, innovation and capability to optimise product differentiation in the marketplace and provide unrivalled speed to market" said Harty.
"At Dairymaster we talk about making farming more profitable, enjoyable and sustainable" said Harty. "There are dairy farms across the country and the world who are using our technology and finding just that. We want to invite everyone visiting the Precision Dairy Conference to visit our booth and see how they can too."
