Major Stand for Cookstown Dairy Services   at RUAS Winter Fair

 They were showcasing the latest in dairy equipment and new user friendly technology.

There was a large selection of dairy equipment covering all product categories including Milking, Cooling, Feeding, Yard Scrapers, Herd Health & Fertility systems.

Of particular interest was the MooMonitor+ app, Swiftflo Swing Parlour and the award winning Swiftflo Commander parlour.

The Swiftflo Commander is the new brain of the milking parlour, controlling everything to do with milking, feeding and animal health.

On the stand to discuss award winning cleaning, cooling, feeding and milking equipment plus herd health systems

were Sean and John Reid from Cookstown Dairy Services along with Pat Ryan and Niall O' Hanlon from Dairymaster.

The Dairymaster range of milking , cooling and cleaning equipment has won many awards at major Agri shows in  Britain, Ireland, EU and worldwide.

For example in Britain the Swiftflo Commander, milking parlour has won “Overall Product Innovation Award” at the Farm Business Cream Awards.

The MooMonitor+ also a multiple award winning health and fertility monitoring system.

Indeed this cutting edge technology has won the Best New Product Innovation Award at the UK Dairy Day in Telford.

Most customers say that they recover its cost within two years so it’s a great investment for ant dairy farmer.

According to Sean Reid   “the MooMonitor+ App is a powerful tool to help farmers make the right decision at the right time, which is getting more important as herd sizes increase”.

When the system detects sick cows it will send an immediate notification direct to the farmer’s mobile allowing them to intervene sooner.  Veterinarians or AI technicians can have access to farms and can even monitor several farms on their mobile.

The Dairymaster SwiftCool App is the newest stage in the evolution of Dairymaster’s energy saving milk cooling range.

The App works in tandem with CoolControl tanks and has the power to give real time information about the status of the tank.

The SwiftCool App monitors the milk cooling system on farm and provides real-time updates to the farmer’s mobile phone.

It gives control and peace of mind to the farmer that thousands of litres of valuable milk is being safely cooled.

Dairymaster are the only manufacturer to provide this information to the farmer via an App.

They estimate that over a 20 year period that the average dairy farmer in Northern Ireland could save £35,000 on energy costs using their Swift Cool system.

As regards milking systems Dairymaster say that a survey of 340 dairy farms in the UK has shown that

for herds of over 200 cows the rotary was the most labour efficient system.

It saves 11 hours per cow over a year compared to a robot and this equated to a very significant margin difference of 7 pence/litre.
