Our solutions

All of our products complement each other


Producing high-quality milk requires time and care. It requires healthy and happy cows and making the right choices. Choices that fit in with you and your goals. Our solutions for automatic milking help you make the right decisions to achieve these goals.


Efficient feeding has a positive effect on cow's health and milk production. Mixing the right portions in the right quantities and releasing them just at the right moment requires knowledge, understanding and time. Our products for automatic feeding take on this task and are exceptionally efficient. Saving you time and ensuring the right quantity of feed is fed at the right moment.

Housing and caring

An animal-friendly and productive environment contributes to optimal cow health and well-being. It also lengthens the lactation cycle. By choosing the best and most comfortable design for the dairy with the right resources, you not only improve cow health but it also increases the milk yield and reduce the costs.

Animal health

Healthy cows are crucial for every dairy farm. A healthy herd contributes to a healthy business. Animal health is a combination of stress-free cows that have enough space and can behave naturally. Also a healthy rumination contributes to the total cow health, reducing the risk of diseases and infection.

Farm Management

Our customer’s data is all over the farm and spread over many parties that visit the farm, supply the farm, or collect from the farm. A digital eco system is emerging and taking from where the voice of our customer will determine the future direction. New sensors, powerful algorithms, artificial intelligence, miniature computers; everything gets connected.

Free cow traffic and cow health

Cow health and well-being is of vital importance to all dairy farms. A healthy and stress-free cow is a productive cow. This can be aachieved by the optimal freedom of movement for the cows: free cow traffic.

The cows decide themselves when to eat, drink, relax or be milked. This ensures a natural rhythm, stimulates the activity of the cows and leads to an improved milk production.
