A very impressive installation by our MilktechNZ® Dealers Dairytech South for Karen and Gary Mikkelson. The installation was carried out over 2 days between milking so a massive effort.
The Milkkelsons farm near Edendale in Southland and milk 600 cows through there 50 bail Herringbone. The opereation is a great family affair with 50/50 sharemilkers Braden and Nicole Milkkelson and Karl and Leah [Milkkleson] Laurence. From Braden and Karl, “We have to keep updating and keeping up with the times and using the lastest technology is a must. We are now a two man dairy and with no over milking and better animal health these are all positives. We love the multi colour LED to tell us what stage the milking is at and changing the milking settings to suit our herd and during the season is where it’s at.”
