Our range of inflations for the ADF automated post-milking hygiene system has been developed with over 10 years’ on-farm experience giving you the very best inflations to suit your herd and milking preference. Our technical experts can advise which ADF inflation is the best match for your herd, ensuring the most seamless transition for your cows.
The unique insights we have gained from working with our customers who have performed over 600 million milkings in more than 30 countries have helped us to identify the key issues that are faced in the challenging conditions of the milking parlor.
The inflation is the only piece of the milking machine that is in contact with your cow and is therefore fundamentally important to an effective milking. Our focus over the years has been on improving both the cows’ milking experience and operational performance.
Continuous design improvements have led to the current range of inflations – each has been perfected to incorporate the ADF System’s patented teat dip delivery and inflation rinsing through the innovative Dual Injection feature – giving you both optimal teat coverage and protection from infection.
Compared to conventional milking systems, the ADF System has the significant benefit of ensuring gentler removal at the end of milking. This reduces stress and in turn benefits milk let-down.
At the point of take-off the Dual Injection feature overcomes any residual vacuum in the head of the inflation facilitating gentle removal and coating the teat with dip.
For added operational assurance, our unique Hoodlock design secures the inflation in the shell, preventing it from being dislodged in the event of a cow treading on the cluster.
For best results and milking performance, inflations should be replaced on time. Worn inflations can significantly reduce milk yield and extending life is false economy. Every milking operation is recorded by the ADF control box and for your convenience, indicator lights will activate when inflations are due to be changed.
All ADF inflations are made from REACH compliant compound.
For complete peace of mind and hassle-free maintenance, we can offer automated inflation deliveries direct to your farm – giving your herd the very best milking experience.
