PETERBOROUGH, ON (March 15, 2016) DeLaval experts were recently invited to Mexico City, Mexico, to participate in a supplier summit for Coca Cola FEMSA S.A de C.V, the leading Coca Cola bottler. Though Coca Cola traditionally focuses on carbonated soft drinks, the summit, held earlier this month, centered on new technologies for value-added dairy items. Included in a joint session with sister company TetraPak, the DeLaval team discussed milk quality and dairy sustainability topics for producers as well as processors. The presentation illustrated the link between optimal hygiene, herd health and high quality milk production. It also alerted Coca Cola to the regulatory concerns of certain teat disinfection solutions. Specifically the team focused on Nonylphenol Ethoxylates (NPEs). NPE residue has been linked to environmental biodegradation issues and aquatic toxicity.

Peterborough, Canada 15 January 2016. Lameness is painful for cows and can be expensive for dairy farmers as lameness reduces mobility, diminishes appetite and drops milk production. When combined with veterinary treatment costs, longer breeding intervals and involuntary culling, lameness is the 2nd highest medical related cost on dairy farms. Bacterial hoof infections are passed effortlessly from cow to cow. Limiting their spread through collective or individual treatment is key to maintaining good hoof health.

HUNTER RIVER, PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND (August 13, 2015) Feeding is often the biggest expense on any dairy farm. The labour costs related to and the feed itself amount to up to 70% of any farms’ production costs. Making feeding methods more efficient does not just save costs, it increases milk yields. DeLaval is constantly updating its solutions to fit those requirements and the inclusion of Optimat™ to its feeding solutions is good example of DeLaval’s integration of farmers, technology and cows.
