Welcome to adf milking

Reducing clinical mastitis in the herd is one of the biggest challenges a dairy farmer faces. High levels of mastitis not only impact on production, they jeopardise your revenue in terms of milk quality and the cost of treatment.

ADF's Automatic Dipping and Flushing system has been shown to significantly reduce and control mastitis.

The timing of teat dip application is key. Immediately post milking the teat is extended and most receptive to the disinfectants and emollients within the teat dip; as skin pores are accessible this enables a good bacterial kill and is also the optimum time to apply skin conditioning agents. As a result the post milking open teat canal is protected from infection in an instant, dramatically reducing the risk of negative pressure drawing infection into the teat canal.

Cross contamination between cows is controlled as the milking unit is automatically sanitised between each milking. Every teat, on every cow, at every milking benefit from clean liners.

Farms already using ADF have seen SCCs fall following the installation of ADF and the improvement in herd health continues as healthy cows move up through the herd.

By installing the ADF system not only will you save the money spent on treating your cows, you?ll achieve increased throughput as there are fewer cows to treat, and you?ll generate more revenue as more of the milk produced can be sold.

The ADF system is really working for us; it's helping us to maintain low cell counts and, as a result, we treat far fewer cows for mastitis and keep our vet bills low.

One thing we've noticed is the design of the inflation (liner), which fits really well. There's no slippage on the cows' teats which means you don't get any squawking or slurping and, as a result, the cows are far happier during milking.

And because we don't have to keep refitting liners and the post dip is done automatically we've been able to reduce the amount of labour in the parlour.
