GEA’s DairyProQ rotary parlor opens groundbreaking production possibilities for milking herds of 500 cows and up. With 28-80 milking stations, approximately 120-400 cows can be automatically milked per hour, with just one operator supervising the entire process.
Cows appreciate the individual attention they receive during the milking process, and the spacious, comfortable surroundings provide a sense of serene calm. The unique milking routine, from attachment through to dipping and cleaning, takes place in a fully automated process with consistent precision.
The DairyProQ’s high-performance technology guarantees round-the-clock productivity with the highest level of reliability. Each milking stall module operates independently and has its own decentralized attachment activator, so milking processes are available at all times. The parlor’s high-tech components and modular design produce consistent high quality. The DairyProQ also comes with an innovative service plan from Dairy Specialists that allows repairs and maintenance to happen during operation, reducing downtime.
Intelligent technology is attractive, especially when it makes your work easier and saves valuable time. The fully automated feed pusher, FRone, by GEA moves feed towards the feed fence at the times you define and according to the routes you set. This ensures that your cows have access to fresh, high-quality feed around the clock – even lower-ranking animals in the second feeding group.
Precise processes ensure optimum feed utilization:
The GEA FRone combines tried and tested technology with maximum precision and reliability. Regularly pushing the feed forward ensures your animals can get the most out of the nutrition you provide – a welcome cost saving for your business.
The handy remote control enables you to program a 24 hour cycle of routes and start times to suit you and your animals, quickly and easily. And you can configure as many different routes as you like. There is also an additional option to clean the feed alley passageway.
The GEA FRone can even charge itself: every time it completes a route, it returns to the charging station in the barn to recharge until the next programmed feed push.
