Dairymaster wins Eurotier Gold Medal for new innovation in milking goats...



Dairymaster has won the top award for innovation - the Eurotier Gold Medal for their Swiftflo Goat Rotary. On 11th November this Award was officially handed over to Dairymaster on the EuroTier.

“Innovation in milking is key to Dairymaster and winning this prestigious award for our highly efficient rotary is an honour. Everything we do is with a focus on how we can make dairy farming more profitable, enjoyable and sustainable and this award highlights that Dairymaster has a lot to offer progressive farmers” said Dr Edmond Harty, CEO, Dairymaster.

As the demand for goat milk increases and farm size grows revolutionising technology of milking goats is becoming increasingly important. Therefore Dairymaster designed a revolutionary way of milking goats as it uses a new design of rotary milking system with a robotic carriage where 1 operator can milk up to 1300 goats per hour for herd sizes of 500 goats and above.

In order to produce significant quantities of goat milk its necessary to milk a lot of goats since the milk yield per goat is low relative to that of a cow. Traditionally increasing herd size meant long hours spent in the parlour and increased workload for the operator. Dairymaster recognised these challenges and applied their expertise and innovative technologies to design one of the world's most automated goat rotary.

The Swiftflo Goat Rotary has been designed to give optimum operator and goat comfort. The cluster is conveniently located directly under the goat's teats in a robotic carriage in the platform of the rotary. Optimum udder presentation speeds up cluster attachment enabling the operator to milk with ease, speed and a minimum of stress.

The unique design of the Dairymaster Swiftflo Goat Rotary parlour has allowed farmers to achieve a cluster attachment rate of under 2.5 seconds. When the goat has fi­nished milking the teat cups are removed automatically. The cluster can then be automatically sanitised to reduce the risk of cross contamination and is then stored hygienically underneath the rotary platform. There is also the option of automatic teat spraying.
