    Cow Retention


    Dairymaster has pioneered the use of an optional retention device for rotary parlours.  A retention device is lowered behind a cow, prohibiting exit until the cluster has been removed.

    When the operator places the cluster on the cow, the retention device is lowered retaining the cow in her bail during milking. Under normal circumstances the Automatic Cluster Remover removes the cluster from the cow and the retention device is raised to allow the cow to exit the platform.

    Where installed with Weighall Milk Meters further intelligence may be added. The software checks a cow's yield and milking time against her normal statistics and if deviations are outside user defined limits the retention device will retain the cow and send her around to the cups on operator again. As the cow approaches for the second time, the operator will be alerted through the parlour sound system and on the Milk Meter display screen. The software for retention can also be configured so that the retention device does not drop unless there is a deviation from the cow's normal statistics. The Dairymaster retention greatly reduces the workload on the operator as it eliminates the need to manually retain cows in their bail.
