Dairymaster Launch the Swiftflo Commander Parlour

At the National Ploughing championship held in Ratheniska, Co Laois from September 22nd – 24th 2015, Dairymaster will launch the new hi tech Swiftflo Commander parlour for Next Generation Milking.

As herds are getting larger there is less time for individual attention, during milking so access to the right information at the right time is essential. The Swiftflo Commander is the new brain of the milking parlour controlling everything to do with milking, feeding and animal health. It offers a new level of intelligence that takes command of each milking unit within the parlour.

Data alone has no intrinsic value, it's what you do with the data that creates value. The Swiftflo Commander gives the farmer a lot more information when and where it’s needed. Putting this information in people’s hands means major benefits on busy dairy farms.

Next generation touchpad technology means that it is extremely robust, easy to clean and water resistant. It also controls the pulsator in a new way which results in a longer life span.

The Swiftflo Commander displays important information such as milk yield, milking time, and somatic cell count data on each cow and much more. One touch allows you control feed effortlessly at each milking unit, it can also display if your cow is in heat and draft that cow with a single touch for AI or further inspection.

Imagine a system that can identify what each cow is contributing to your herd SCC. The Swiftflo Commander can display a cow’s percentage SCC of the entire herd.

It will also prompt the farmer to do a California Milk Test (CMT) when high SCC information is received so diagnosis and treatment is much sooner.

The farmer can enter information directly from the milking point for example treatment dates. The smart technology automatically retains milk until the withdrawal period is up and it is safe for it to enter the milk tank again. You can also divert milk effortlessly.

It also indicates freshly calved cows that enter the parlour and allows colostrum to be diverted. It uses speech technology to inform farmers of information at a time when they can re-act to it.

With more emphasis on hygiene and ever increasing milk quality standards the cleaning performance of each unit is also individually monitored. The Swiftflo Commander gives the farmer the capability and functionality of easily doing herd management at every single milking point.

The Swiftflo Commander uses smart technology that allows all units to be updated within a few minutes. This smart technology ensures that you have the latest features and capability into the future.

You are invited to visit the Dairymaster stand no 211 for the official launch and more information about award winning Dairymaster equipment. These include cleaning, feeding, milking, heat detection and milk cooling equipment.

Dairymaster personnel in attendance will include Edmond and Ned Harty, sales & marketing people, veterinarians along with technical experts on parlour design and milk cooling.
