The ICAR approved Afi-lite milk meter is a simple to use milk meter giving the operator full control of the milking process. Linked to the Crystal Herd Management program turns the milk meter in a powerful parlour assistant recording milk and milk quality data and at the same time allowing the operator to access individual animal data and receive alerts.
The Afiflo ICAR approved milk meter has been developed for the most demanding breeders wanting to keep track of all details regarding productivity and reproduction during the milking process.
The multiple displays on the Afiflo allows the operator to instantly access and record individual cow data to and from the Crystal herd management program during milking.
Crysta Act uses a pedometer identification tag registering activity to detect oestrus events. It indicates if and when a cow is in heat enabling the determination of the best time for insemination. In addition to heat detection Crysta Act is also an effective tool for lameness detection and reproduction issues such as e.g. anoestrus, abortions and cyclic disorders.
The Crysta Act+ uses a pedometer identification tag registering activity to detect oestrus events. It indicates if and when a cow is in heat enabling the determination of the best time for insemination. In addition to heat detection Crysta Act+ is also an effective tool for lameness detection and reproduction issues such as e.g. anoestrus, abortions and cyclic disorders.
Crysta Heat Flex registers activity data over a whole lactation making it a valuable tool to detect heat, abnormal heat (nymphomania, anoestrus, abortion), lameness and other welfare issues.
Crystal herd management: Completing the management Circle
Dairy farming is more and more becoming a complex and sophisticated business. The need to have accurate, up to date information on which to base herd and business decisions is essential. In addition to this, growing consumer interest, animal welfare requirements, traceability and food quality increase demands for accurate record keeping in relation to farm activities. With the right information, the farmer can make the correct management decisions.
CrystaWeigh is a precision walk over weigh system which will record the animal’s body weight without stopping her. The weight recordings will be registered in the Crystal herd management system and will be shown in graphs. Body weight can be monitored as a single parameter, but becomes more valuable when it is monitored in relation to other information such as milk yield, animal activity, stage of lactation, and daily feed allocation.
The Fullwood FC2 ACR is a new generation of cluster removers, designed with the needs of animal and operator in mind. The compact design of the flow sensor ensures that cluster removal takes place at precisely the correct milk flow, preventing "over milking" and therefore safe guarding udder health and milk quality.
The Fullwood FC2 is based on FarmCAN™, which combines power and communication to link all components together. The build in self-diagnostics will inform the user and service engineer about the working of the individual components. This simple, modular solution, ensures designing, installing, configuring, servicing and daily operation of the parlour, are all much easier and faster.
The FlowMatic III is an advanced Automatic Cluster Removal controller, suitable for milking cows, goats and sheep. It provides a visual display of milking time and milking progress. Furthermore Kick-off detection is available.
The main function of the FlowMatic III controller is to determine the correct time for automatic cluster removal upon completion of the milking cycle. This guarantees udder health and avoids over-milking or premature cluster removal.
FlowMatic Plus is the latest generation of Automatic cluster removers designed with animal welfare and operator’s needs in mind and ensuring the harvest of good quality milk. This unique combination makes the FlowMatic a user friendly, easy to maintain ACR which can be fitted in any milking parlour.
The combination of the sensor technology and sensor design enables the FlowMatic plus to control cluster removal at precisely the correct milk flow level preventing ‘over milking’ and therefore safe guarding milk quality and animal welfare.
