Another very exciting project for MilktechNZ® in the beautiful Bay of Islands, Northland for Joe and Jenima Foster and Okaihau Pastoral who are multi business and farming award winners. Although we at MilktechNZ® do many rotary installations it was our first on a rotary that floats on water (Rotaflo).
The farm milks 1160 cows throughout the year and the system is run as a high input system 5. The cows are milked through a 60 unit rotary where MilktechNZ® CR-1 cup removers and retention arms have been installed.
Joe said there was a number of reasons OPL choose MilktechNZ®. “There are a number of systems in the market but we loved the construction and quality of the MilktechNZ® equipment, plus the support we have received from Craig at MilktechNZ®. The equipment is very adaptable in the fact we could have the electronics under the platform away from dirt and moisture. The ability to change our milking parameters to suit our herd throughout the season is also a great feature and finally we were looking for ease on our staff, and cup removers certainly provides this.
From the team at MilktechNZ® a huge thank you to Joe and the team at OPL. And finally thanks Joe and Brad Foster for stepping up to the plate for the photo – we love it.
