    "It's no problem milking by yourself, With the Dairymaster plant we rarely have a set of cups get kicked off"

    Quiet Heifers and no cup slip!


    The Dudley's first experience of Dairymaster was in 1999 when they installed a 30 bail Dairymaster Swingover Parlour on their farm in New Zealand. At this time the family milked 330 cows on the 120 Hectare home farm and 120 cows on the farm next door.
     
    In 2005 the family made the decision to incorporate the two farms and milk through one new dairy. Wally comments "There was never any question about the plant in the new dairy, we asked Dairymaster to install a 50 unit Rotary including ACR's and Autowasher".
     
    The new dairy was constructed on the same site, meaning everything had to be finished inside three months. Mark had always milked in a Swingover, however within a few weeks he said he would never want to go back.
     
    Mark commented "Usually I milk on my own and Brent will get the second herd and help with the washing up, Helen or Emma will also milk on their own on occasion. It's no problem milking by yourself, with the Dairymaster plant we rarely have a set of cups get kicked off, heifers are quiet, and we never get cups slipping".
