Individual milk measurement


Collecting individual animal milk production automatically and managing animal’s data


It displays easy-to-read individual data on milk yield, instant milk flow and milking time duration in clear red digits (e.g. DeLaval) to simplify effective, daily flock management.

Milk conductivity and temperature may be recorded (e.g., AfiMilk, Lactocorder)

How to implement:

The flow milk meter must be positioned in the milking parlour.

You need to have all your animals tagged and their individual information entered into a software (DeLaval, AfiMilk or others).

Expected benefits:

  • Milk yield individually monitored at each milking.
  • Individual warnings based on milk yield drops and /or conductivity raising for an early detection of mastitis and other pathologies/distress conditions.
  • Adequate feeding plans according to requirements

Prerequisites and/or limits:

  • Have a flock management software
  • Calibration
  • Automatic drop-off
