Trade-In Your Cluster and Boost Your IQ

Dairy farmers can now trade-in their existing milking clusters for the award-winning GEA Farm Technologies IQ Cluster.

IQ Cluster

The world’s first four way milking cluster, IQ, collects milk in four separate guide chambers. This allows each individual teat to be milked separately – effectively isolating each quarter, helping prevent intra-mammary cross-infection, improving udder health, operator efficiency, milk quality, yield and milking time.

Commercial Manager at GEA Farm Technologies, David Wenner, said: “The innovative four way cluster design of the IQ won the RABDF Prince Phillip Award 2009 and is the world’s first cluster of its kind. More and more farmers are reaping the benefits of the IQ and the trade-in offer is part of our commitment to help dairy farmers improve their herd health and milk quality in an affordable way – So there is no excuse for all other dairy farmers to benefit as well.”

Farmer Michael King at Kingspool farm in Iron Acton, near Bristol said: “We’re really pleased with the IQ Clusters, they stay on extremely well with no liner slip. They are better for the cows, better for us and better for our milk buyer as our cell counts have improved. I would definitely recommend them to other farmers.”
