It was fantastic working with Trevor and Mary Jury and their son Peter and his partner Nikki Smart who milk 460 dairy cows through a 50-bail rotary at Hikuai on the beautiful Coromandel Peninsula.
Trevor’s comments – “We have operated over the last 30 years with cup removers and this season upgraded to electric cup removers from MilktechNZ. The whole system is very tidy and robust, milking udders out to an extremely high standard. We find lifting the cups to activate the vacuum is a great feature and due to the different coloured lights on the pushbuttons, you can easily identify which stage the cup remover is at. Currently, we operate without cow restraints and instead choose to adjust the milking take-off time according to seasonal milk flow variances. The cup remover parameters are easily adjusted through our phones to suit our seasonal variation in milk flow. We were also very impressed with the prompt installation and fast friendly service we received.”
To the Jurys a big thank you from the team at MilktechNZ, and thanks Trevor and Peter for stepping up to the plate for a picture.
