Henk Pastink – Farm Owner

Farm Owner Henk Pastink from Henria Holsteins Inc in Ontario, Canada, explains how installing the ADF automated post-milking hygiene system has helped to reduce labor.


“The ADF System is really working for us. We installed it back in 2009 on our 50 point external rotary parlor with the aim to reduce labor whilst milking our herd of 700 cows. Automatically dipping and rinsing sped up time in the parlor so we’re now milking up to 300 cows per hour, twice a day. We’ve maintained low cell counts and as a result, we treat far fewer cows for mastitis and keep our vet bills low.”
