What are farmers saying about Automatic Dipping and Flushing from ADF Milking
mark

After seeing an advert in British Dairying, July 2008, we contacted ADF and were invited to see the system working on a farm in Scotland.  My husband, son and I were impressed by the ADF system, particularly the way in which the cows were immediately dipped after the milking cycle was completed.  We also took along our technician, William, who checked out the system and confirmed it ‘does what it says on the tin’ and without much maintenance.

We decided to fit the ADF system in our new parlour and very quickly realised the real benefit in time saving.  We milked in our new parlour on Christmas Eve 2008 without the ADF system and had to spray each cow individually after the whole row of milkers were off, as we couldn’t remember which cows had been sprayed.  This took a lot of time and patience.  In January 2009 the ADF system was installed – and once the last milker was off, the front gate was opened and the cows were away – no need to spray!

Previously in our old parlour, we would have had problems with cross contamination in heifers and young cows. Since installing the ADF system this has been eliminated because of the flushing system.
